Last week, it was an honor and a joy to co-teach a writing workshop with my Fulbright colleague Janan Alexandra at the Home for Cooperation in the United Nations Buffer Zone in Nicosia, Cyprus.
Our workshop, “A True and Beautiful Story: Crafting the Lyric Biography” was organized around the concept of “lyric biography.” This genre allows for an exploration of a person’s life deeper than a conventional recounting of journalistic facts. How can we drive at a deeper truth and understanding through interviews that strike at a poetic understanding of a person’s essence?
