Who Was I/Who Am “I”?
The workshop guides writers into thinking about the self as a literary device. As we explore real-life anecdotes, we discuss how to transform them from lived experience into art, and how to choose the details that shape story. Generative prompts during class encourage spontaneity, risk and expression.
