Riding the Rails of Time: Disrupt Linear Time in Personal Essay
A personal essay generally has a timeline—the series of events as they unfold. You as the individual who lived those events are aware of what happened before and after. In this workshop, learn to use flashbacks to provide context, add poignancy by flashing forward to show what you did not know at the time but will someday understand, and hop across multiple timelines to show the connection between the personal and larger cultural narratives at play.
