Telling True Stories [Wendy Call]

We’ll hone fifteen tools for improving the lyric and narrative qualities of our prose, drawn from my anthology Telling True Stories: A Nonfiction Writers’ Guide. This workshop offers strategies for facing the blank page, sharpening your sentences, and seeing a long writing project through to completion. We’ll spend equal portions of our time completing writing exercises and considering examples from master word-workers: Sandra Cisneros, Elizabeth Gilbert, Stephen Kuusisto, George Orwell, and Sei Shonagon.
