Saturday, Nov. 16, 2019, 10 - 11:30 AM
Karma Bird House, 47 Maple St., Burlington (rooftop conference room)

Join YWP and Mindy Wong for the second in her series of six writing workshops on creative nonfiction. Mindy says, "Writers tell fascinating personal stories not just by highlighting the crazy or eccentric but in their ability to capture those seemingly insignificant moments (that tell us more than we know!)." This workshop, “What does it feel like to exist (on paper)?”, will explore the different layers that go into a personal narrative that captures our lives on paper. Try a range of writing prompts and activities that will help hone skills and read what influential writers say about their nonfiction.  SIGN UP HERE!
