Your Personal Stories Matter: Writing Workshop with Leslie-Ann Murray (Virtual)

April 16 @ 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

Your Personal Stories Matter: Writing Workshop with Leslie-Ann Murray (Virtual)

You’ve always wanted to tell that story about your life, your community, and your family. But how do you get started? How do you develop a consistent writing practice? What is the best story to tell?

More than ever, the personal narrative has become our mainstay in conversing about race, immigration, identity, ourselves, and a myriad of intersectionalities. You could be a part of this conversation and write your own personal story.

This workshop will teach emerging writers how to get started with writing their personal stories.

Workshop Takeaways:

1. Participants will learn the importance of journaling to enhance their writing practice.

2. Participants will learn the basics of the first drafting process.

Leslie-Ann Murray is a fiction writer from Trinidad & Tobago. She created Brown Girl Book Lover where she interviews diverse writers and reviews books that should be at the forefront of our imagination. She is currently working on her first novel, This Has Made Us Beautiful. Leslie-Ann has been published in Poets & WritersZone3Ploughshares, and Salamander Literary Magazine. Leslie-Ann has taught creative writing in France, Trinidad and Tobago, South Africa, China, and New York City.
