To I or Not to I: Writing the Personal in Creative Nonfiction--À La Carte
It's a common assumption that personal essay, memoir, or general creative nonfiction somehow requires the use of the first person—the "perpendicular pronoun" as my erudite father-in-law (and accomplished writer) puts it. But there are other ways to make a piece of writing deeply personal. When is it most powerful to go with the first person? When not? This session will look at ways to discern the answer to these questions and tactics for bringing the writer's presence into a piece no matter what pronoun is used.
