Tin House Live : Lidia Yuknavitch on “Writing from the Deep Cut”

Lidia Yuknavitch gave this craft talk, Writing from the Deep Cut,” at the 2018 Tin House Writers Workshop. As Lidia says: We are (always) living in tumultuous times. The despair and trauma fracture our life narratives daily, culturally and personally. And yet we endure, make love, make art, we keep creating. There is so much to learn from the edge of things, from the cracks and cuts and fissures of the earth, of our hearts. What can writing become? What new narrative strategies are emerging? How might we become and story ourselves differently? How might more bodies and stories and voices emerge as the old mono stories break apart? Storytelling is a site of resistance and generative possibility, in all times.”
