      EVENT DETAILS
      Creative Non-Fiction Writing Workshop

      The most successful works of memoir, whether books or essays, combine self-imagination, a bare naked heart and a fearless dose of honesty. This workshop will be structured around finding our way into this place. Read excerpts, write, share work, and discuss different methods of non-fiction storytelling. We will investigate ways to unearth material from our lives and learn constructive editing techniques. Our focus together will be generating new work—you'll likely leave with several fragments and starts, and one longer piece to return to on your own. Margaret Malone is the author of the story collection PEOPLE LIKE YOU (Atelier26 Books), Finalist for the 2016 PEN Hemingway Award and Winner of the Balcones Fiction Prize. Her writing can be found in The Rumpus, The Missouri Review, The Masters Review, Oregon Humanities, and elsewhere. She lives in Portland, Oregon where she is a co-host of the artist and literary gathering SHARE.
