DESCRIPTION

These writers mine their own experiences for creative exposition. In creating works that straddle the fictional and the autobiographical, when does one let the narrative take over? Three authors discuss treading the fine line between art and reality, and how the tension between the two can spark more ideas or develop the work in unexpected ways.

This session is presented in partnership with Goethe-Institut Singapore.
