On Writing the Empathetic Imagination
with Charles D’Ambrosio
Sunday, August 22, 2021, 3 PM – 4:15 PM EST
What does it really mean to transcend one’s own story and enter into another’s? What language is used, what scenes, what telling details, what echoes? Charles D’Ambrosio has much to teach and I will share the lessons from one chosen essay. Throughout the presentation, I’ll pause to ask questions, to offer prompts, and to wait for chat room responses, which bloom like poetry. Three days in advance, an on-line link to the essay will be provided to those who sign up.
