June Third Thursday: “Writing About the Body”
June 17 2021 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM CDTFree
- Registration for this event is now closed.
We all have bodies that allow us to experience the world around us in unique, but ultimately human ways. Writer Lidia Yuknavitch says that “we are all walking around carrying every experience we have ever had written on our bodies. Our physical bodies.” And this very truth speaks to the importance of listening to our bodies and paying attention to what they’re telling us when we’re getting ready to write about our experiences in the world. Fiction or not, we speak from the vantage point of our bodies or our character’s bodies because the body is the carrier of our experiences, our stories.
Join us in June for a conversation on writing and the body. We’ll explore the ways that we might write from our bodies, about our bodies, and for our bodies.
The conversation will be moderated by WLT Program Director Sam Babiak.
RSVP to receive the link. We hope to see you there!
