|How do you write about a community you are not a part of or about an experience you haven’t gone through? C.E. Gatchalian will lead a workshop on these questions with an in-depth discussion as well as a creative exercise that will embody the often conflicting dynamics involved with writing about others.|
In the afternoon Gatchalian is doing a reading and panel at Whodunit? Bookstore (163 Lilac Street).
