Workshop: Andy West on Writing the Self

Writing personal essays brings unique challenges. How do you capture the particularity of the personal whilst still connecting with bigger ideas and themes? How do you stop the emotional from eclipsing the rational and vice versa? Andy West confronted these questions whilst working on his book about teaching philosophy in prisons, which also told the story of growing up with family inside. In this workshop, he reveals the solutions he discovered and gives you writing tasks to help you find your own way.
