Intimate, personal, and revelatory: memoir and biography take us into the lives of real people. A pleasure for the reader, this raises questions for the writer: How much creative license can one take with true stories? And how hard is it to tell the whole truth about hard times? Join our panel to consider the risks and responsibilities that come with writing real life.

Intim, pribadi, dan rahasia yang diungkap: memoar dan biografi membawa kita ke dalam kehidupan orang sungguhan. Kesenangan bagi pembaca, ini menimbulkan pertanyaan bagi penulis: berapa banyak kebebasan dalam kreatif yang bisa kita ambil dengan kisah nyata? Dan seberapa sulitnya menceritakan keseluruhan kebenaran tentang masa-masa sulit? Bergabunglah dengan panel kami untuk mempertimbangkan risiko dan tanggung jawab yang datang dengan menulis kehidupan nyata.
