About

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.
