A Self-Guided Guide to the Self

with
Kevin Fisher-Paulson

Kevin Fisher-Paulson talks about a creative life, and the commitment required for that creativity. Writing is a search for meaning, and he gives a series of prompts for the real life that morph into prompts for the visionary life. Kevin discusses structure, genre, and voice but most importantly, how to tell a story.

Kevin Fisher-Paulson studied writing at the University of Notre Dame, with continued coursework at the University of Iowa. His short story, "Virtue Enough for Miss Grrrl," appears in the anthology When Love Lasts Forever, by Pilgrim Press. His memoir, A Song for Lost Angels, was a finalist in the Ben Franklin Independent Publishing Awards. Kevin writes a weekly column for the San Francisco Chronicle. He lives in San Francisco with his husband, two sons, and rescue dogs.
