You’re a Real Character: Writing about Yourself in Creative Nonfiction
Description: Figuring out how to write accurately about yourself and others is one of the fun challenges of creative nonfiction. In this workshop, we’ll discuss psychic distance, reflective voice, character development, and other tricks of the trade to help you figure out how to put yourself in an essay, as well as the other option: how to leave yourself out.
