‘Autobiography in Fiction’ – Creative Writing Workshop via ZOOM

Monday, June 1

3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Our guest speaker, Deborah Batterman, will talk about how writers tap their own lives, via memories as well as the present time, to create stories.  She will give examples that draw from her own process and also offer strategies to get a story started.

Deborah Batterman is the author of Just Like February, a finalist in the 2019 Next Generation Indie Book Awards, 2018 Best Book Awards, International Fiction Awards, and American Fiction Awards.  A story from her collection, Shoes Hair Nails, was nominated for a Pushcart Prize and her award-winning stories and essays have appeared in anthologies as well as print and online literary journals.  A native New Yorker, she has worked over the years as a writer, editor, and teaching artist. Her blog is an exploration of all the small things, and the big ones, that impact our day-to-day lives.
