This workshop is limited to 80 participants, no creative nonfiction writing experience is necessary.
In this free 90-minute craft workshop, delivered on Zoom, Kasia Van Schaik will lead participants through the process of writing a personal essay using a braided technique: a form of nonfiction wherein the writer interweaves multiple threads and through-lines of material, each on a different subject, connecting the personal with the political. In this way, the braided form allows us to think about the ways in which we are linked to our larger environments and ecosystems. The workshop will include a craft talk, writing tips, and creative exercises, so bring a pen and paper! A short question and answer period will follow.
