Personal Narratives Track

The Personal Narratives Track provides the opportunity to investigate the fundamental concept of identity by exploring personal narratives.

The prompts in this track are designed to experiment with ways to portray personal experiences while simultaneously addressing universal themes of culture, history, and identity that can captivate a universal audience.
