Local Author Talk: Erin Flanagan on You’re a Real Character for ages 18+ will be held at Yellow Springs Community Library on Thu., Jan. 18, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Writing accurately about yourself and others is one of the difficulties of creative nonfiction. In this workshop, we’ll talk about reflective voice, character development, writing for an audience, and other tricks of the trade to help you think about how to put yourself in an essay, as well as the other option: how to leave yourself out. Erin is the author of two short story collections: The Usual Mistakes and It’s Not Going to Kill You and Other Stories and is a professor in the English Department at Wright State University.
