Writing 360 Workshops

Memory as Time Travel: The Wild Possibilities of Creative Nonfiction

Saturday, Mar.12
2-4PM ET

online event; only open to Mentees and Mentors in Writing 360

Pop culture, food, travel, illness, science, love, and people are just a few of the springboards for writing memoirs, essays and profiles that mine your personal experiences. This generative creative nonfiction workshop will look at the many ways to explore and reconstruct memories on the page, pulling from readings and also using writing exercises to explore expansive and sometimes experimental approaches to moving through time and space in creative nonfiction.
