Inlandia Institute presents Adventures in Chronologyland, an exciting new series of virtual writing workshops in conjunction with the Riverside Public Library’s new Humanities Hour series, a partnership between Riverside Public Library, Riverside Art Museum, Mission Inn Museum, and Inlandia Institute, sponsored by California Humanities.

This workshop will address the challenges and opportunities of drawing on chronology while writing prose and poetry.  Topics will include integrating documents and memory, crafting chronologically parallel stories, connecting your life with major historical events, using flashbacks and flashforwards, dealing with changing and conflicting personal perspectives on the past, and addressing the complications of nostalgia.

Six sessions: September 9, 23, October 7, 21, and November 4, 7 pm on Zoom.

Dr. Carlos Cortés is the author of Rose Hill: An Intermarriage before Its Time (memoir; a Heyday) and Fourth Quarter: Reflections of a Cranky Old Man (poetry; Bad Knee Books). He is Professor Emeritus of History from the University of California, Riverside.
