The Telling Itself: Illness Narratives as Healing and Craft [Katherine Standefer]

All Levels | In this workshop, we will craft personal nonfiction narratives that explore the experience of illness, considering how craft choices can elevate the personal to the universal and how to avoid common illness narrative pitfalls, including overly technical language and the onerous play-by-plays of treatment. We’ll also discuss the established therapeutic value of writing about such experiences, exploring the difference between writing that primarily seeks to heal and writing that seeks to reach literary audiences. This class includes a one-hour break.
