Your writing persona is the second self you become or create when you sit down to write – the self who’s wiser, more objective, more fully aware than you know your daily self to be – and who can see straight through to the truth about your characters, your material, your stories, your poems, and therefore keeps you at your best. We’ll explore ways to create that persona as well as ways that persona shows up on the page. Presented by Wayne Ude.
Wayne Ude is the author of three books of fiction: "Becoming Coyote," "Buffalo and Other Stories," and "Maybe I Will Do Something." As founding director of the now-disbanded Whidbey Writers Workshop on Whidbey Island, Washington, Ude directed thesis projects in fiction and also taught fiction workshops and craft of fiction to advanced students and undergraduate fiction workshops.
