On Writing Misunderstanding
with Helen Garner
Sunday, October 24, 2021, 3 PM – 4:15 PM EST
It’s so easy to get so much wrong—in life and on the page. Some of the best writing there is springs from a recognition of our own poor misperceptions, miscommunications, wrong judgments. Helen Garner has written a masterful essay pertaining to just these themes, and we will think it through together. 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.
