Geo Eros: Metaphorizing Place in Nonfiction and Memoir — August 7th

August 7 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

Geo Eros: Metaphorizing Place in Nonfiction and Memoir

A Webinar with Lidia Yuknavitch

In some ways, you are the places where you’ve been in your life. Since experience is difficult to carry around in our puny human bodies and often overwhelms us, metaphorizing—or creating core metaphors around place, objects, being and knowing—can open up new narrative strategies for storytelling. In this webinar we will identify and explore some of your core metaphors and test out some narrative strategies involving writing through place and environment, tracking your geographic origins and mapping out how place informs your life and narrative.

Lidia Yuknavitch is the author of the short story collection Verge (Riverhead Books), the novels The Book of Joan (Harper Books), The Small Backs of Children (Harper Books), and Dora: A Headcase (Hawthorne Books), and the anti-memoir The Chronology of Water (Hawthorne Books). Her TED Talk “On the Beauty of Being a Misfit” has received over 3 million views, and spawned The Misfit Manifesto (TED Books/Simon and Schuster). She lives and collaborates in Portland, Oregon at Corporeal Writing. She is a very good swimmer.
