A New Set of Instructions for Living

$65.00 Members

Anyone beset by illness, catastrophe, or trauma has had to develop a new set of instructions for living. They have to stop measuring themselves by achievement in a market-driven society and find themselves “cracked open,” their vulnerabilities requiring a new set of priorities. How are we altered and how do write about it? We’ll address strategies for not subverting ourselves, using lots of examples and writing prompts, then discuss specific issues, such as when to let a narrator have a pity party, why it’s necessary to rage and be raw, and how to help our readers tolerate ambiguity.
