Ghost Stories & Monster Sightings: Writing The Truths That Haunt Us with A. Kendra Greene
October 31, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am CDT
Abandon all hope, ye writers who enter here! In this two hour workshop with essayist A. Kendra Greene, we’ll resurrect the memories of those cautionary tales, campfire stories, and inexplicable encounters we just can’t shake. Reanimating shared stories and dusting off the legends we’ve inherited, participants will invoke the ancient powers of oral tradition and dare to face the stories that electrify us!
A. Kendra Greene is a writer and artist who has worked at the Museum of Contemporary Photography, the Chicago History Museum, the University of Iowa Museum of Natural History, and the Dallas Museum of Art, where she was a writer in residence. She has an MFA in nonfiction and a graduate certificate in book arts from the University of Iowa and has been the recipient of a Fulbright grant, a Jacob K. Javits Fellowship, and a Harvard Library Innovation Lab Fellowship. She lives in Dallas, Texas, where she is a visiting assistant professor at the University of Texas, a guest artist at Nasher Sculpture Center, and an associate editor at Southwest Review. Her book The Museum of Whales You Will Never See was published in 2020 by Penguin Random House and is available now.
In November, Kendra joins Kathleen Kent, Chris Panatier, and moderator Alex Temblador on Thursday, November 19th for From The Writer’s Desk, a panel conversation on process and the craft of writing. RSVP here.
