In his acclaimed essay “The Singular First Person,” Scott Russell Sanders refers to personal essays as “maps of meaning.” In other words, perhaps we are compelled to craft the stories of our lives on the page, that we might come to some truth about the meaning of our experiences. Words, then, become maps, charting the distance between the past and the present, and leading the writer – along with the reader – to a place of discovery. Whether you are considering creative nonfiction for the first time or have a memoir on your desk, this workshop will challenge you to ask the complex, real questions that inspire powerful narratives, and offer prompts that you can continue to develop independently long after the workshop concludes. Writers will also have the opportunity to share the pieces they begin in class, as well as give and receive constructive, considered feedback to carry into the revision process.
