Each of us has a writing voice that is distinctly our own. Creative nonfiction is a great way to discover that voice. In this workshop, we will use texts and writing exercises to help us discover who we are, what we think, and how to capture our voice on the page. Writers of all levels are welcome.
Students will leave this workshop with the following tools:
- Finding and refining our voice
- Understanding and trusting the value of our lives and experiences
- How old notebooks and journals can be used to mine for stories
