Event Details

As in fiction, the most memorable personal narratives often revolve around people who’ve marked our lives in unforgettable ways.

The goal of this 4-week workshop is a simple one: to bring the people who occupy our memories–mothers, fathers, friends, lost loves–to the page with the same force that they exist in our minds.

Each week, we’ll read iconic portraits from creative nonfiction writers and use their techniques–dialogue, scene, vignette, analogy–to develop our own original work. Class time will include reading, discussion, writing, and individual feedback. As our portraits take shape, we’ll discuss what role our characters might play in a longer work.
