Event description
Whether we tell real stories or true ones, our work uses the same muscle: we draw upon all senses to capture each idea as one would a memory

About this Event

Event Type: Workshop

Event Code: NEC/SAT-2W

Venue: Native Education College, Classroom

Cost: $15***

We may define creative non-fiction as “real stories disguised as fiction.” Conversely, we might define fiction as “true stories vividly told.” This workshop explores how both definitions may be combined as we negotiate a single story. Whether we tell real stories or true ones, our work uses the same muscle: we draw upon all senses to capture each idea as one would a memory. This workshop facilitated by Téa Mutonji will help us unpack true stories and develop them into real stories, scraping the line between fiction and non-fiction.
