The Spring 2018 issue of Dunes Review is here — come join the release party!
In this workshop, instead of treating interviews as sources of often-unreliable factual information, we’ll approach interviews as invaluable, even sacred opportunities for people to tell us the stories that explain who they are and the lives they have lived. We’ll put a priority upon humanistic and journalistic approaches over those of social science, focusing not on the “informant” but on the person. Instead of going into an interview with long lists of fact-soliciting questions, our preparation and practice will rely upon careful listening and the sympathetic pursuit of the stories people use to make sense of their lives.
Use the time you gain from “fall backwards” to gather-in and meet fellow Michigan Writers from Antrim County. This social event, hosted by poet and Michigan Writers director Yvonne Stephens, will be the first in a series of informal gatherings throughout NW Lower Michigan.
What makes a story move? If you find that your stories often run out of energy and stall, or that your characters and scenes stagnate, join this workshop to focus upon the power source — the “engine” — that drives your story forward. In this interactive FREE workshop, we’ll focus upon the common structural elements that good stories share. Offered by Michigan Writers, in partnership with National Novel Writing Month.
