Kristin Hersh Stranger Than Fiction: A Memoir Workshop July 16 to July 21, 2017 Tuition: $600 Workshop: 1pm-4pm Discipline: Nonfiction/Memoir OPEN TO ALL On-site Housing NOT Available - Off-site Housing Options
If truth is stranger than fiction, how do we incorporate that strangeness into a worldview that allows for it? Solving a life equation is best done with a small world/big picture orientation. This workshop will walk us through the process of orienting ourselves to living and sharing our own stories, bringing idiosyncratic experience into the realm of the universal.
KRISTIN HERSH is a musician and author. Her first book, Rat Girl/Paradoxical Undressing, made Rolling Stone's list of the top ten music memoirs of all time. NPR said of her most recent book: "Don't Suck, Don't Die, is not only one of the best books of the year, it's also one of the most beautiful rock memoirs ever written."
