Michelle HunevenAt their best, memoirs, personal essays, and other forms of creative non-fiction are a compelling mix of keen observation, vivid expression, and clarity of thought.  In this workshop, we will develop our individual voices, address ways to research and report our subjects, and explore the use of literary techniques to create non-fiction that is lively, evocative, meaningful, and deeply true.  We will discuss dialogue, narration, sentences, structuring strategies, and other elements of craft as they arise in the work we’re reading.  

Requirements: Submit a 10-20 page draft of your work by Friday, 31 May 2016.  See the Manuscript Submission Guidelines page of the Paris Writers' Workshop website for more details.
