AWP 2018 Panelist: The Dividing Line

The Dividing Line: Blending Research In Personal Narratives

Room 13, Tampa Convention Center, First Floor  

This panel will gather together creative nonfiction writers who mix various types of research into their personal narratives. Inherent in their creative process is a burgeoning integration of both the shared and the personal. The panel’s discussion will focus on the way each writer approaches this “dividing line,” the space between the material that comes forward through extensive research and the material pulled from the writer’s unaided memory.

The Arts of Pen and Posture

Take time to listen to and tell the story of your inner being! In this all-levels yoga and writing session, yogis and writers alike will cultivate and play with the powerful connection between writing and embodiment. We will enjoy some aligned vinyasa yoga, meditation, and restorative yoga paired with creative writing exercises to prompt new insights into our creative selves. No matter your writing or yoga experience, our time together will focus on a consciousness-building yoga practice and reigniting the possibilities of the page.

Class: Art & Practice of Writing

Do you want to grow your writing practice? Do you have a story to tell? In these writing sessions, we will focus on tuning your voice on the page. In our time together we will cultivate essential elements of writing, tap into the power of close observation, and offer guidance for implementing a writing practice in everyday life. We will engage in nontraditional writing exercises rather than bringing in preexisting work. Ideal for beginners of all genres and anyone hoping to deepen their practice.
