Writing Affinities: The Impelled Second-Person Story

Introductory | Reginald McKnight proposes a story told by a particular person to a particular person—at a particular time, for a particular reason. In this workshop, we will generate a story that smuggles a secret from your life into a monologue spoken by an invented character. Call this form an “affinity,” where one character fiercely confides in another. We will inventory deep memories, develop a character based on a “familiar stranger,” and draft a monologue in prose or poetry.
