How to write about your family and stay alive

A special workshop in English for writing your family stories

How to write about your family and stay alive 
A special workshop in English for writing your family stories (10 sessions)

Many of us reach a point in life where we want to write OUR story. Family stories define us; they tell us about our roots and who we are, and they are what we leave for the future.
However, there are many challenges: how to get started, find the interesting stories, choose the best narrative, decide what to leave outside the story, or rather, what to invent? How should we deal with family secrets, and with the reactions of our beloved ones?
In each session, we will read some of the participants’ works, learn new tips and advices, and will discuss issues such as immigration, parent-child relationship, holidays, childhood and adolescence, autobiography vs. autofiction, family cuisine passed along from one generation to another, etc…

The workshop will be held in English, aimed to allow a multi-cultural discussion, for people who write in English or in other languages.

Moshe Sakal is an awarded writer, published in Israel, USA, and France. His novel THE DIAMOND SETTER, which tells his family story, was acclaimed by NBC; named one of TimeOut New York’s “11 Books You Will Want to Binge-Read This Month,” and Entertainment Weekly has called “[An] essential read…[one] of 2018’s biggest titles…a vital depiction of queer life in the Middle East.” ​
