Telling Your Story: A Personal Essay Workshop-A Humanities WA event

Telling Your Story: A Personal Essay Workshop-A Humanities WA event Online

Our life stories are a means for connection—a tender offering in a troubled era. Part reportage and part reflection, personal essays can reveal hidden truths about ourselves, our families, and our societies.

In this interactive and generative writing workshop, Kristen Millares Young will help participants tell their own stories. Each hourlong session will begin with a one-page reading to inspire group discussion, followed by timed prompts that guide individual writing sessions. By weaving together community narratives, we can craft a vision for our future that includes hope and the capacity for unexpected change.

Kristen Millares Young (she/her) is a prize-winning journalist, essayist, and teacher. Named a Paris Review staff pick, her novel Subduction was a finalist for Foreword Indies Book of the Year and two International Latino Book Awards. The editor of Seismic and a former Prose Writer-in-Residence at Hugo House, Young was the New York Times researcher for “Snow Fall,” which won a Pulitzer Prize.
