2017 Gold Rush Writers Conference

Telling Your Story


Amy Smith

Amy Smith In this workshop we'll explore how to craft nonfiction stories that have the stylistic appeal of fiction. We'll discuss your goals for your work - personal satisfaction? Preserving precious family stories? Producing a blog? Or do you want to go the distance and publish a book?

We'll cover genres that blend with memoir, including travel literature, family histories, illness narratives, survival stories, and more. We'll explore the complicated question of just how creative you can get with your nonfiction before it starts turning into fiction-and why that distinction matters.
Come ready to write!
