Experiments in Creative Nonfiction
Creative nonfiction is one of the most mysterious and flexible forms in modern writing. In this 6-week workshop, writers will not only explore their own personal voice but also different ways in which that voice can be expressed.
Together with writer and former Dial Press editor Carla Riccio, we will look at authors who push the boundaries of personal narrative, using everyday texts--lists, manuals, prescriptions, questionnaires--as structures for surprisingly personal stories. Through brainstorming and writing prompts, we'll explore these experimental angles and in the process discover exciting new avenues to collect and express our own unique perspective.
Ages 13 and up. Teen Studio will continue on Thursday afternoons throughout the school year.
