Craft Talk: Lighthouse Literary Festival | Boundaries & Strategies for the Memoirist

Creative Nonfiction, All levels

Craft Seminar: Lighthouse Literary Festival | Denver, CO |

Is the artist more important than the art? How do we write riveting scenes without risking our health or sanity? How do we write the personal as personal, and the personal as political, and what is our responsibility to history and to ourselves? How do we begin, and when is it enough—when do we stop? Why write it at all? Broken down into the before, during, and after of writing trauma, we will look at boundaries to set in place, on the page and in our lives, and strategies that aid in the artful telling of our delicate stories.
