San Miguel Writers’ Conference, Lecture storytelling: “The Universal Thread,” 6pm, by Kirk Ellis. Narrative is the connective tissue that links us as human beings. Through our stories and the art of storytelling, we share experiences common to all people in all cultures. Stories define who we are and enlighten us on the ways other people see the world. It’s our wonderful responsibility as writers to keep on telling them—and listening.
