Writing about family and friends can be a daunting task when writing memoir. Whether good, bad, or indifferent, the key to turning people you know into characters on the page is choosing the details that evoke the relationship between yourself as narrator and the person as character. Using techniques drawn from traditional storytelling and modern improvisational theater, join Rebecca Mabanglo-Mayor, author of Dancing Between Bamboo Poles, in exploring how gesture, vocal quality, and silence can turn the people in our lives into vibrant characters.
