Problem-Based Writing with Jordan Abel

November 19, 2022, 12:00 PM1:30 PM EST



A creative writing workshop that focuses on how one writes from a problem-based approach. Join Griffin Poetry Prize-winning author Jordan Abel for a session on how to tackle the central issues in your writing—questions that arise may include engagements with ethics, narrative, position, and representation, and we will explore how to find your way through these issues in a manner that makes for engaging, dynamic writing. This workshop is grounded in memoir writing but contains information and strategies that can work across many genres!

This session will be closed-captioned. Closed captioning provided by Zoom auto transcription.

This session will be followed by a Q&A.
