On Writing Childhood
with Terrence des Pres
Sunday, May 16, 2021, 3 PM – 4:15 PM EST
In one of my very favorite essays of all time, Terrence des Pres takes us back to childhood with a sweeping arc, using multiple perspectives and points of view. How does he do this? What can we do to access the authentic younger versions of ourselves? We’ll talk through the text, celebrate techniques, and write for five minutes to a prompt I will provide. Three days in advance, an on-line link to the essay will be provided to those who sign up. A handful of participants will share their prompted sentences out loud.
