When You’re Ready to Tell Your Own Story
There’s a power that comes from telling your own personal stories, whether it be in essay, memoir or other nonfiction form. Join Hannah Bae, writer-in-residence at The Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow, for a candid discussion on how to dig into the stories that only you can tell with vulnerability and care. Hannah will read from her own first-person work about family estrangement and mental illness, with a Q&A session to follow.
