Each of us has a literary DNA, the writing voice which is distinctly our own. The personal essay may be the best form to discover that voice. This workshop is designed for those who don’t think of themselves as writers and who know that they are. Readings and writing exercises will help them find those voices which we all need to hear.
Cary Clack was a Columnist for the San Antonio Express-News for 17 years (and the first African-American on the editorial board of a San Antonio daily newspaper in the city’s history) and rejoined the Express-News staff again in December 2019. His collection of columns, Clowns and Rats Scare Me, was published by Trinity University Press, and in 2017 he was inducted into the Texas Institute of Letters in 2017.
