Turning Life into Literature

We all have stories, even those of us who do not necessarily think of themselves as storytellers or think of their own lives as particularly notable. No life is free from conflict, and conflict--sometimes small, sometimes larger--is the essence of a narrative. During this workshop, William Bradley--author of Fractals--will discuss how we turn our own unique situations into stories, sharing exercises and tips for crafting autobiographical fiction and narrative nonfiction.

The second presentation, "The Surprising Habits of Original Thinkers," comes from author/professor Adam Grant. He examines how creative people generate great ideas and describes three unexpected habits, like welcoming failure. Short discussions will follow each video.
