How do memoirists maneuver masks to represent the real world? When do novelists invoke their own lives through their characters? How do poets vary the voices of their speakers for personal ends? Join a memoirist, a novelist, and two poets as they read and discuss the use of persona in their work. As each panelist also mentors other writers, the resulting conversation will explore the experiences of approaching persona as a teacher, reader, and writer inside as well as outside of the workshop.
