Course Description: Fiction Writing with Renée Watson
Albert Camus said, “Fiction is the lie through which we tell the truth.” In her novels, award-winning novelist, Renée Watson has opened her readers to the greater truths of young women who fight back against gentrification and boxes that tell Black girls what they can or can’t be.
Join this award-winning novelist as you write your own greater truths. In this workshop, participants will create compelling characters, indulge in wild loops of imagination, and satisfy some of their need to tell a greater truth.
This Oregon Writing Project workshop is for teachers or retired teachers who want to explore or refine the craft of fiction writing in a nurturing and challenging environment.
The Oregon Writing Project (OWP) is a collaboration program between Lewis & Clark and metropolitan or rural area schools and districts, and offers programs designed to improve the writing of Oregon’s K-12 students and teachers.
