LITERARY READING – GINA TROISI AND SUE WILLIAM SILVERMAN: This virtual event will be at 7 p.m.

Savory Senses: From Detail to Metaphor to Art

Aristotle writes, “Place is a vessel that holds us.” And, indeed, it is. As writers we need to draw upon our
physical surroundings for sensory images and details to embody our complicated and compelling interior lives.
By doing so, we also discover the metaphors of our narratives, thus turning experience into art.

Memoir writers Sue William Silverman and Gina Troisi will discuss the way these essential aspects of craft can
help to transform our personal stories and open them up to a universal audience. They will read short excerpts
of their work in order to illustrate examples and will answer questions about technique and process.

*All summer residencies are virtual. Please contact MFA Program Coordinator Anthony D’Aries to register at dariesa@wcsu.edu
