Who said non-fiction had to be boring? A generative Creative Lab about writing heart-centered stories based on real-life, this session will help you reinvigorate a manuscript or create an entirely new one. Participants will utilize facts about other’s lives or memories from their own to craft engaging stories that honor truth by representing life as it is, in all its rich textures.
Prerequisites and Advanced Preparation:
This intensive will be most worthwhile for those in the beginning stages of writing a manuscript, those who might find themselves stuck in the weeds of revision, or those who simply want to get their non-fiction creative juices flowing. Please bring a mentor text (a non-fiction story for young people that resonates with you) as well as a notebook, pen or pencil, and your laptop if you wish. For those writing about a historical event or someone else’s life, bring reference materials.
