Publisher's Summary

Marion Winik, one of the country's best-known personal essayists, believes in telling the truth. Her award-winning personal essays tell secrets about herself and describe the raw power of relationships, experiences, and passions, from her husband's suicide to a memorable late-night poetry reading from a swimming pool.

First, hear Marion's two-and-a-half-hour workshop on "The Craft of Personal Storytelling". She invites us to pay special attention to detail, humor, anger, and pain, and reads three of her own essays.

Then, listen to a 25-minute talk on "The Ethics of Self-Exposure", with Marion's three rules for staying out of trouble. It includes her essay on sibling rivalry.

Finally, hear Marion read three of her essays about life in Texas.

Key workshop concepts covered include:

  • The biggest pitfall: self-pity
  • Fear is a sign that you have hit pay dirt
  • Self-deprecating humor works almost every time
  • Specific details carry the emotional weight of your story.

NOTE: This program contains adult language and situations.

    "It's not a book"

    I guess I should know that recordings of writer's workshops are going to be uneven in terms of quality of content, but I took a gamble again. Ms Winik is a good presenter with good insights, but who wants to pay to hear her audience's readings and sharing? It's like listening to a support group.
