      EVENT DETAILS
      Writing Memoir: A Workshop with Dr. Kerry Neville

      This workshop will explore how we might expand a brief, concentrated short moment into a longer nonfiction narrative, one that stores time and revels in the necessary extravagance of words and ideas at play. How do we move from a single thread to a complexly woven tapestry? How can a longer length allow us to explore the tangles that we trim when brevity is the aim?

      Dr. Kerry Neville is an Assistant Professor of English/Creative Writing at Georgia College and State University. She has a B.A. from Colgate University and an M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Houston in Literature and Creative Writing. She is the author of two collections of short stories and her fiction and essays have appeared in such journals as The Gettysburg Review, TriQuarterly, The Washington Post, and The Huffington Post. She received the G.S. Chandra Prize for Fiction, the Dallas Museum of Arts "Arts and Letters Prize for Fiction," the Texas Institute of Letters Kay Cattarulla Prize for the Short Story, and the John Guyon Literary Nonfiction Prize from Crab Orchard Review. She has just returned from a semester as a Fulbright Scholar, teaching in the M.A. in Creative Writing Program at University of Limerick in Ireland.
