Sara Majka: Master Class

Brooklyn, NY Saturday, February 23

This master class explores the idea of writing as akin to leading a double life in which real memories and fictional memories come together as one in a writer’s imagination. What does it mean to carry around a fictional version of oneself as well as an original version? When writing fiction about events that actually happened, what changes during the transition from memory to page? Using the concept of the doppelgänger as a starting metaphor, we’ll play with the line between fact and fiction and look at ways a writer derives power from the transformation.

Sara Majka‘s first book, Cities I’ve Never Lived In, was published by Graywolf/A Public Space in 2016. She lives in Providence, Rhode Island, where she teaches writing at RISD.
