Spirited conversation. Literary culture. Every first Thursday at Valley Bar. Get Lit.
This month: Writing Trauma with Kelsey Pinckney
What are the politics, ethics, and aesthetics of writing trauma? How do these things change in writing about trauma experienced by others versus writing about our own trauma? What does trauma look like on the page--is there a definition of written trauma, or is it relative? Is there a use to writing and reading trauma? How do we present suffering with dignity and avoid exploitation? How can writing help us to heal?
