Creating the Lie of Your Life: A Writing Workshop

Join Jon Doust for a writing workshop on 18 July!

In this workshop Jon will take participants on a journey from memories of real events, to a new vision that re-creates and re-frames those events. Jon recently moved to Albany. He has carved out careers in journalism, stand-up comedy, professional speaking, and writing. He has written children’s books, satirical booklets, been published in two anthologies and contributed numerous columns and articles to major newspapers and magazines. Jon’s recently published book Boy on a Wire has been called a ‘dislocated memoir’ in which Jon took his life as a starting point and then built fiction around it. Some of the events in the book are described as Jon remembers them, others embellished beyond recall.
