What’s real? What’s actually true? Is fiction a lie? Is writing fiction just an elaborate process of making up lies based on real experiences?
How do we use social media to build an ideal version of ourselves? Is creating a curated persona through Facebook and Instagram a kind of lie? Or is it self-preservation? Why, exactly, are we are so tempted to curate our identities? And how does that effect the writer in all of us?
During this 6-week program, we’ll explore how social media is changing the nature of writing and the fine line between real life and fiction, with Canadian novelist, Emily Pohl-Weary, and other local guest authors.
TRUE LIES will culminate in a final public reading event, where you’ll have a chance to share your work!
