At this workshop, we will explore the genre of creative nonfiction. Writing in the genre of creative nonfiction can help one understand a past experience in a way that has relevance to one’s present perspectives.
Come prepared with ideas or drafts about: 1) a memorable past experience, trip, or event that still resonates with you or that you are still trying to understand; 2) a short traditional cultural or family story that holds interesting meaning for you; 3) an idea about a recurring or significant object from the past experience.
This is an excellent workshop for beginner and emerging writers.
Space is limited, so please register in advance here.
