Writing Workshop with Creative NonfictionSaturday January 18, 2020
10:00 AM until 2:00 PM
Join us as we welcome an instructor from Creative Nonfiction!
Creative nonfiction has become one of the fastest-growing genres in the literary and publishing community. It encompasses forms from memoir and personal essay to literary journalism, travel writing, and hybrid forms like the lyric essay, as well as many others. In this four-hour workshop, we will welcome an instructor from the award-winning magazine Creative Nonfiction, which provides a lively blend of exceptional long- and short-form nonfiction narratives and interviews as well as columns that examine the craft, style, trends, and ethics of writing true stories.
This workshop is a part of our 2020 project Do the Write Thing!: A Whitehall Community Anthology, partially sponsored by a grant from PA Partners in the Arts. It is our intent that the attendees of this workshop will plan to submit a piece for publication in the anthology.
