Memoir Workshop – Lighting up the Past

Personal Essay and Memoir Workshop

memoir-writing-workshop-sqPart generative and part critique, this bi-weekly memoir workshop welcomes writers who have already begun a memoir or essay project as well as writers who have a project in mind but have yet to begin writing.

In addition to creating new personal writing, you will also have the option to share and get professional feedback on pages from your memoir or personal essays.

We will also reflect on the work of successful memoir and personal writing through history,  and we will learn ways to remember, discover, and light up our own past and bring our rich memory and experience into our writing. Everyone in this workshop will have the chance to begin a new memoir project or go more deeply into a project already in process. Writers of all levels are welcome in this course.
