Problem-Based Writing with Jordan Abel - The FOLD

Problem-Based Writing with Jordan Abel


A creative writing workshop that focuses on how one writes from a problem-based approach. Join acclaimed author Jordan Abel for a session on how to tackle the central issues in your writing—questions that arise may include engagements with ethics, narrative, position, and representation, and we will explore how to find your way through these issues in a manner that makes for engaging, dynamic writing. This workshop is grounded in memoir writing but contains information and strategies that can work across many genres!

This webinar has now ended. You can view the recording of the session, complete with closed captions, on the FOLD YouTube channel.
