The Stories of Others

The Stories of Others

525.00

If you've ever found yourself sucked in to a conversation between two strangers, know that you're not alone. And in the best of cases, they're only strangers because you haven't gotten to know them yet. It's thanks to writers listening and writing them down that so many of the world's best stories can be amplified and heard outside of their original contexts. Thankfully we can always improve our ability to pause, listen, and record others' lives into moving narratives that treat the truth with craft and care. The Stories of Others is a workshop for writers of creative or academic nonfiction that deals with true subjects, whether historical, technological, political, environmental, journalistic, religious, or anything else under the sun. What matters here is an eye for detail, an ear for voice, and a desire to channel the world through your words so that new readers might enter it more fully. The world is a noisy place. Let's keep listening. (You will have the opportunity to have your writing workshopped every week.)

Thursday 10am to 11:30am (Manhattan)
