I was very excited to participate in this curious project with so many writers that I admire. Behold, the Memory Collective.
Attending the AWP Conference this year?
I’ll be joining Kate Hopper, Hope Edelman, Bonnie Rough and Marybeth Holleman to “consider what happens when we write about past events in the present tense. When does present tense provide needed immediacy, and when does it limit an author’s ability to write to the true story? We will explore the benefits, challenges, and drawbacks of using present tense as we craft our lives on the page, and we will discuss how tense affects other craft issues, such as voice, reflection, and structure.”
