Visiting Author Series–Memory and Omission with Porsha Olayiwola 3/21

Participants in this memoir-hybrid writing workshop will spend time looking at memory and a particular memory's relationship to absences. Rooted in futurism, participants will work on three pieces that explore the power yielded when we build our own context or deconstruct the context surrounding who and what we are made of. This workshop will not only question what happens when we narrate our own stories but also invite participants to think about imaginative ways to reshape, and un-shape truth.

Lighthouse Writers Workshop makes me hopeful about the future of the arts in America.
—George Saunders, recipient of the 2017 Man Booker Prize
