Memory. Reflection. Craft. Fellow writers. Beloved books.
We imagine memoir writers undertaking brave, solitary excursions into personal history. In some ways, they do. But few worthwhile books emerge fully formed from hidden garrets. The five “companions” listed above proved essential to Anita Lahey as, over many years, she wrote and rewrote The Last Goldfish: A True Tale of Friendship. In this session, she’ll discuss elements of self, craft, and community that go into transforming one’s own potent experience into a story that will resonate with readers.
