15th Anniversary Spotlight — Jeanne Cordova

Each day for the 15 days leading up to the WAW Open House (October 7, 2012, 2-5 p.m.), we’re going to feature a current or former participant who’s completed a major project (book, film, album, academic credential). We’ll find out what they learned that helped them with their work.

Jeanne Cordova, One Page At a Time
Project: WHEN WE WERE OUTLAWS: A MEMOIR OF LOVE & REVOLUTION

What I learned at WAW: That writing is an art, like painting, which needs many layers laid onto the canvas. I learned what “story” meant. And I learned how to write story, as differentiated from “background notes” which is what TW first said encountering an early draft of When We Were Outlaws. She was right. I was wiped off my surfboard. Then I got up.
