Event Details

Join Us!
What counts as religion and how can we best write about this subject? In this workshop, participants will explore different genres of nonfiction — among them memoir, reportage, and satire — weighing the stakes and significance of each. Sam will lead the group in a series of writing exercises, with an emphasis on scene, description and character-development. Participants are encouraged to bring two memories from life or memory — things observed or experienced — touching on religion or religious life, broadly defined.
Hosted by March Resident Sam Kestembaum
