Event Description

Speaker: Candace Walsh

 

When beginning a story, how do you decide which genre to pursue? At times, New Mexico Magazine managing editor Candace Walsh’s personal stories have led her to publishing a full-length memoir (NM-AZ Book Award-winning Licking the Spoon: A Memoir of Food, Family, and Identity) and writing an autobiographical fiction novel. She also used their momentum to edit two Seal Press anthologies. Her personal essays regularly show up on the Huffington Post, a powerful publicity creator and sales driver, and numerous anthologies. In this class, Walsh will share advice, tips, and practical exercises to help you pair your personal narrative with the right form.
