4-Day Workshop
Wednesday – Saturday, May 6 – 9 | 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

During our time together, we will read excerpts of exemplary memoirs (and peek at a couple of craft manuals); take them apart to figure out how they became so exemplary (and to remind ourselves that their authors were once staring at a blank page, too); do some craft exercises to practice those concepts; and then deploy them in short pieces of memoiristic writing that we will workshop as a group. No prior submission of work required.

Boris Fishman immigrated to the U.S. at nine, from the former Soviet Union. He is the author of the novels A Replacement Life (which won the VCU Cabell First Novelist Award and the American Library Association’s Sophie Brody Medal), and Don’t Let My Baby Do Rodeo, both New York Times Notable Books of the Year, and Savage Feast, a family memoir told through recipes. His journalism has appeared in The New YorkerThe New York Times MagazineThe Wall Street JournalVogueTravel + LeisureThe London Review of Books, The Washington Post, and many other publications. He lives in New York and teaches creative writing at Princeton University.
