Registration for the year-long writing workshop "Telling the Truth in First Person" with Fishtrap is open. This year's memoir-writing instructor is John Daniel.
Daniel is the author of three memoirs, two volumes of personal essays, and two collections of poems. He has won numerous awards for his writing.
The aim of this course is to complete a substantial draft of a book-length memoir. It begins and ends with a one-week workshop at summer Fishtrap, 2009 and 2010, and the group convenes once for a briefer session in January 2010. Between these workshops participants correspond with the instructor individually, each sending 25 to 30 new pages per month for critique and discussion.
