Finding answers in fiction
I'm been a writer in the collegian and have also published a few poems. I'm finishing my studies in sociology and creative writing. My talk will focus how beyond living in a community, we are also immersed in our fiction. There is an attraction to watching the fantastical, surreal aspects of others imaginations up on a screen, or having a story procured through a string of words. In the multiple ways we criticize our fiction, as individuals we draw on aspects of the made up to give breathe to what we don't define as real. in this talk I'll explain some of the ways fiction can either be a hinderance in our lives, or a way to expand our notion of reality.
To clear up one sentence: "as individuals we draw on aspects of the made up to give breathe to what we do define as real." Sorry for the minor typo.
