Workshop Registration: April 13

A 2-hour Workshop:
Writing the Difficult Topic
with Mary Collins

Saturday: April 13, 2024
12:30 – 2:30 pm
In Person & via Zoom
SWW members: $20 ♦ Non-members: $30

Mary handles this particular topic a lot (especially at the Yale Summer Writing Program) because of her book At the Broken Places: A Mother and Trans Son Pick Up the Pieces (Beacon Press). They did a national book tour for that (her son Donald Collins is the co-author, but the book reads like a joint memoir). In the end they had to figure out how to exchange stories and experiences instead of opinions. They had to understand their pain was deeply personal but the project had way more value if they turned outward, included others, saw their story in relation to national trends. As you can imagine, a parent with a transgender child has been a HOT topic the last 7 years.
