2:30 – 3:45 PM—Writer’s Craft Session
Marion Winik: MEMOIR BOOT CAMP
How does a memory become a crafted essay? A series of prompts breaks this transformation into bite-sized tasks, from choosing what to write about to developing characters, setting, and dialogue, to theme, structure and organization. Along the way, we’ll discuss the ethics of writing about family and friends, the uses of both research and imagination in memoir, and the importance of self-implication. Bring laptop or pen and paper—you’ll walk out with the first draft of a short essay.
