WHAT WILL WE DO?
Our May 2019 workshop will focus on questions of voice and narrative authority. What does an authentic memoir voice sound like? How is it crafted? How do we learn to trust our own voices as we tell our stories? How do we, on the one hand, use our found voices to elongate scenes, and how, on the other, do we edit our work to its most crystalline core? Our setting will be an historic inn in Frenchtown, NJ. We will ground our work in the shared reading of excerpts and essays. We’ll offer a special single session dedicated to the best graphic memoirs of our time, to find out what they teach us about narrative and truth.
