Novelist, memoirist, and award-winning author of the Kick Ass Women series Karen Karbo will lead an all-day workshop at OWC’s Annual Conference, April 25-27, 2014. The conference will be held at the Sylvia Beach Hotel in Newport.
The title of her workshop will be “The Way I See It: Writing Creative Nonfiction As Only You Know How.”
Creative nonfiction is the most popular genre in modern publishing. Personal essay, essay, literary journalism, immersive journalism, travel writing and memoir — no form is more far reaching, yet trickier to master. True stories are all around us, but how do you tell a compelling true-life tale? How do you make facts fascinating? How do you find what truly interests you and make it your own? This workshop will focus on helping writers identify the kind of creative nonfiction that only they can write.
