About the Session
This session explores broad approaches to identifying and developing new writing projects based on our personal histories. Which moments are rife with raw material and exploding with potential? How does one excavate facts, details, and meaning from everyday experiences? A blend of lecture and generative exercises, this session will help writers identify which personal experiences might tell a good story while structuring the events for maximum clarity and emotional impact.
