Whose Side of the Story? Practices and Pitfalls of Writing Personal Experiences

 

Novelist, short-story writer, film scholar, English professor, and creative writing instructor Nadia Bozak will guide workshop participants through discussions and writing prompts geared towards transforming memories and real life events into fiction or memoir. While engaging such elements of fiction as character, setting, and point of view, writers in this workshop will, first, explore how their own unique life experiences impact the words they put on the page, and, second, question the blurry distinction between fiction and reality.

 

Books available for purchase at every event: Proceeds support our free children’s literacy programs.
