Dispatches from Quarantine – First Person Lonesome Online Workshop
How does one write about the experience of COVID? It’s universal–the virus has covered the world, but it is also particular. Some of us were home, others “front line workers.” Many of us had mild cases, others very severe. And almost all of us spent a lot of time alone, or in cramped conditions with family and cohabitants.
This workshop will tangle with the idea of writing about a worldwide phenomenon without devolving into cliché or empty sentiments, how to build a first-person narrator’s thoughts, feelings, and experiences in a way that is both unique and can connect to a large audience. Come prepared to write about yourself, or about someone else who might have been a little lonesome when shelter-in-place began.
