Autobiography Workshop with Nils Peterson
Saturday, March 28, 2015, 1pm to 4pm

PCSJ members: $50, general: $60 students: $30
Eventbrite - Writing Workshop with Nils Peterson: Autobiography
limited to 12 participants!

Pacific Hotel, Renzler Room, History Park
1650 Senter Road, San José, CA 95112

Writing an autobiography in an afternoon. An autobiography is an attempt to discover the shape and form of one's life. For this one, we will avoid all "and then and then-ness" and try to concentrate on what is really important. Participants must be willing to write fast and foolishly. You can bring wisdom in later if needed. The result may turn into poems, but it is better to think of this as a proseish beginning to your own exploration. Once again, participants should be willing to write quickly. The inner poetry critic can come later.

Lunch not provided. Bring your writing materials.
