Kathryn Winograd will be presenting on how to write about the forbidden and the hidden topics in our lives. Her talk will focus on the literary “tool bag” writers can use to help write through the hard stuff. It’s not courage that a writer needs, but the essentials of craft and concrete forms. These tools help take the writer out of the drivers seat so that true expression can be made through image, metaphor, and detail, without any of the baggage getting in the way. Come “bare the soul” with beauty, wisdom, and sudden insight. Bring to this workshop some of the “hard stuff” you’ve been trying to write about and leave the need for “courage” at the door.
