Whether you are writing for publication or for family & friends, we will discuss ways to write your life story in an engaging, reader-friendly way. Bring your memoir thoughts & ideas to the workshops and we will work on:
• Finding your voice and style
• How to structure your narrative and handle timelines
• Collated essays vs. a longer narrative
• Truth and memory
• Identifying the central theme
We’ll work to prompts with written and spoken exercises and there will be a prepared reading plus one final assignment for feedback.
