Join award-winning novelist Steve Almond for this event featured at the Concord Festival of Authors. Steve Almond’s workshop, “Where Your Story Starts: Doubt and Disequilibrium,” aligns with his writing series, Workshops for Democracy. Too often in our lives (off the page and on) we seek refuge in a sense of assurance and psychological stability. But our most intense and lasting experiences are ones that involve doubt and disequilibrium. So what happens when we focus on those moments, when we allow ourselves to return to those lost weeks and months and years? Looking at the work of Charles D’Ambrosio, James Baldwin, Lorrie Moore, Cheryl Strayed, and other modern masters, we’ll dig deep into this troubled terrain, and use an in-class writing assignment to discover what truths we can reveal. Space is limited at a discounted rate of $15. Scholarships available.
