"Writing against Your Material" Workshop

How do we write about our most tragic experiences with levity, or turn simple observations into outrageous comedy? This workshop will explore how to write against your material in creative nonfiction—that is, how to create dissonance between your tone and your subject matter in order to maximize your stories’ emotional impact. We’ll look at scenes from great memoirs and essays that use this counterintuitive tool, including work by Kiese Laymon, Patricia Lockwood, David Sedaris, and Alexandra Fuller. Then we’ll try writing some scenes from our own lives, practicing the art of scaling back our language for the heaviest moments and ramping it up to make a mundane moment hilarious.
