Workshops: Reading an Autobiographical Incident, Writing About a Life Experience, Telling a Story.
[FROM THE TEXT]
Do you wonder what it is like to fly over the ocean alone in a small plane? Would you like to know what it is like to live in a different country? You can learn about these experiences by reading “autobiographical incidents.” An autobiographical incident is a true story about a specific event in a writer’s life. Not only do you learn about the event, but you also learn why the experience is important to the writer. Because writers share, or express, their thoughts and feelings, an autobiographical incident is an example of expressive writing. You also share autobiographical incidents. When you talk with your grandmother about your track meet, for example, you are telling a story about yourself. Writing an autobiographical incident is a great way to express what you think and feel.
