Crafting Your Identity
When: Saturday, May 4, 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM
Where: The Writer’s Center (4508 Walsh Street, Bethesda, Md)
Are you working on an essay or memoir in which you explore your cultural heritage, racial identity, or ancestry? We will read and discuss selections of essays and memoirs by writers who celebrate their cultural, racial or ethnic identities and also raise issues related to discrimination, assimilation and frustration in relation to expressing those particular identities.
You will create new work by doing in-class writing exercises. Also, you may bring a nonfiction writing sample to workshop during class.
Writers of all levels and cultural backgrounds are welcome!
