Make Your Own Work MiniCourse: How to Write About Your Family without Writing a Story that Feels like Therapy
What are your two biggest questions about writing?
I often hear folks wanting to write about their families, but are afraid of writing something that feels like therapy.
I totally get it.
In this first class, we're going to focus on creating characters by learning how to interview your subjects (family members) in a way that generates story with a strong POV behind it.
This is the first step in learning how to turn autobiography into fictionalized drama.
Making Your Own Autobiographical Work :
Here's what we'll discuss in today's class
1. How to listen to what your characters aren't saying when you're feeling blocked or unclear where to start
2. How to structure a solo play by learning how to interview your characters (both imagined and real people like your family members)
3. How to create deep, complicated characters and dialogue using the Roshamon Storytelling technique: tell the same story from the POV of different characters
4. How to Write Autobiographical Material without losing your mind

P.S. Apologies in advance for the feedback in the class video when participants talk, you may want to lower the volume. However, the content was so solid, I didn't want to deprive you of the opportunity to start writing.
