Who Am I This Time? Narrator as Character [Beth Slattery]
Intermediate | In this nonfiction workshop, we will investigate the narrator as more than a voice. Who is being presented? Is the narrative voice different than the character performing in the plot? How does the narrator appear physically? In an attempt to understand who the “I” is and how best to present yourself to readers, we will investigate work by Mary Karr, Dave Eggers, James Baldwin, Anne Lamott, and others. Students will leave with two developed essays and extensive instructor feedback.
