Okay, you lived it, but how will you write it? This four-week memoir writing workshop will focus on the aspects of craft that steer us through our own stories. The shape our stories take is just as important as the stories themselves! We can learn a lot about ourselves, our style, and especially our voice, by bending the rules of genre.
Participants will read creative pieces by established writers and craft essays that span the gap between form and freedom. In-class exercises will produce rough and polished pieces, with the opportunity to rewrite, revise, and reimagine your pieces with the help of additional resources between classes. The most important tool you will leave this workshop with is an ear tuned to the sound of your own voice.
Class is limited to TWELVE participants, aged 50+, who will commit to attending all 4 sessions. Please sign up at the second floor information desk.
- Audience: Adults, 50+, Adults
