Fred will focus on the value of replacing the term “back story” with “memory”.  The opening speaker at OCWW for many years, Fred is an experienced literary editor, writer, and teacher of writing in the Northwestern School of Continuing Studies and private workshops. One of the greatest challenges faced by writers is finding ways to represent things that happened in the past, or the back story. Fred will suggest that a basic knowledge of how people remember their lives can enable writers to solve problems about the length, placement, and relevance of past experience, and improve the quality of the writing.
