Intimate Writing: How to Balance Your Private and Public Personas

People who are transparent tend to have the most loyal audiences. But how do you share the most intimate parts of your life without sharing everything and losing yourself? This session will show how writing about the most intimate topics—sex, mental health, etc.—can empower your readers and empower you.

Attendees will learn:

  • How to create a positive environment so your readers are willing to share and have a deeper discussion
  • How to set boundaries around what you share, while still resonating with your audience
  • How and when to respect the boundaries of others as you’re telling your story
