“Writing About Your Turning Points
We’ve all had horrible experiences that have shaped our lives–destroying some aspect of ourselves, allowing a new self to emerge. For this reason, many of the best moments in memoirs happen when something terrible happens to the narrator. This workshop will tease out these moments, giving advice on pacing, building scene and character, and cultivating a strong narrative voice.”
Novella Carpenter , The author of the best selling Farm City: The Education of an Urban Farmer & Gone Feral: Tracking My Dad Through the Wild
She will be here at the Union City Library to present a Writing Workshop.
