Each and every one of us possess complex identities, which include such elements as race, age, ethnicity, gender, orientation, religion, class, national, political orientation and much more. In this workshop, you’ll be encouraged to write your identities through the lens of fiction, poetry and/or creative nonfiction. Participants will explore short writing exercises designed to help us think through approaches to representing aspects of identity, as well as addressing some of the common pitfalls of this work, with the goal of creating deeper and richer characterization.
