“But he [Lorca] gave me permission to find a voice, to locate a voice, that is to locate a self, a self that is not fixed, a self that struggles for its own existence.”— Leonard Cohen
Everyone has a story they want to tell.
But how do we transmute the raw material of our experiences and insights into writing composed with meaning and authenticity?
And how do we find a voice that is true to the tale we want to tell?
Join Carl Nagin, professional writer, former journalist, and former Harvard professor, in his upcoming writing workshop exploring personal narratives as a means to express, memorialize, question, and uncover our experience and identity in their diverse, often contradictory manifestations. Explore the craft of personal narrative through writing exercises focused on developing an authentic voice and practicing narrative strategies as exemplified in readings of predominantly Jewish authors.
