Facilitator's statement:

In this workshop we will begin with some conversation around the essays in Section 6 of The Impossible Will Take a Little While and discuss connections between personal experience, writing, and social engagement. We’ll practice our own essay writing by reading some additional short pieces of creative personal nonfiction and talk about how to turn personal experiences and interests into strong and evocative pieces of writing. We’ll also further consider possibilities for writing as social action in the world. Participants need not have prior experience with creative or essay writing but simply be willing to share and learn. Ideas and examples from previous sections of The Impossible Will Take a Little While will be welcome.
