Spirit of Story: A Conversation with Deborah A. Lott

This spring the formidable Deborah A. Lott—author, editor and college instructor—will be visiting the Unlocking Your Story workshop. She’ll be offering us an inside view of the creative process behind writing her memoir Don’t Go Crazy Without Me, which just hit the shelves on April 7th! It’s a coming of age story of a girl who grows up under the magnetic spell of her outrageously eccentric father.

In our interview below, Deborah shares about what she believes to be essential when writing memoir, and imparts some of what she teaches her writing students at Antioch University.
