Rendering Reality: Writing with Honesty and Complexity in Memoir

In Mary Karr’s The Art of Memoir she states, “In memoir the heart is in the brain . . . self-awareness and faith in the power of truth gives you courage to reveal whatever you unearth” regardless of how you come out looking. This craft talk will focus on how using scene, form, and revision can help memoir and nonfiction writers represent themselves, their companions, and place with honesty and complexity. Using her experience writing Daughter in Retrograde: A Memoir Courtney will share her own process and answer questions.
