Hosted by Jim and Doris Kelly
While the title of the presentation is a joke, there’s a lot of truth in it. Award-winning author Shawn Wong’s first novel, Homebase, was published when he was 30. His second novel, American Knees, was published when he was 45, reducing the time by half. What goes into a novel? What is the creative process like? And why does it take so long? People often talk about “the creative process,” but this discussion, led by Shawn Wong, will unpack that phrase and explore how a work of fiction is made.
Attendees will talk about how writing might move from something autobiographical to something fictional, how we construct fiction out of something real, and how we “edit” the story of our lives, through what we leave out and what we include.
