On Saturday, from 1-3:30 pm, Toutonghi will teach a workshop “Writing with Balance.” Whether in fiction or nonfiction/memoir, how do you share personal, painful stories and still negotiate active relationships with the people involved?
How do you decide what to tell — and what not to tell? What are some of the best practices for determining the best way to use a difficult or personally challenging piece of your story?
Author of four books, Toutonghi has been awarded a Pushcart Prize, and has written for The New Yorker, The New York Times, Virginia Quarterly Review, Granta, Tin House, and numerous other periodicals. After receiving his PhD in English Literature from Cornell University, Toutonghi moved to Portland, Oregon where he teaches at Lewis & Clark College.
