Brian's Craft Talk will focus on which will entail a mini-studio and highly participatory presentation around a few nonfiction exercises. The talk will spotlight a few features of recent genre-expanding life writing and intellection (e.g., Alison Bechdel, Anne Boyer, Dionne Brand, Kate Briggs, Annie Ernaux, Valeria Luiselli, Maggie Nelson, Wendy S.
