WRITING THE TOUGH STUFF: When, Why, and How to Tackle Painful Material with Lisa Ellison (an Encore! Master Class)

Saturday, July 31 at 12:00am to 11:59pm

During this two-hour master class, we’ll explore common roadblocks creative nonfiction writers face. Next, we’ll examine the purpose behind your most difficult stories. Finally, we’ll practice specific writing techniques that will help you address memory lapses, writing around traumatic incidents, using structure to make your point, and writing without retriggering yourself. This session is perfect for creative nonfiction writers of all experience levels. Lisa Cooper Ellison is an editor, coach, writer, and speaker with an Ed.S in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and a background in mindfulness. This pre-recorded Master Class will be available through July 31.
