We all have a story or two to tell, and whether you’re interested in capturing a few of the most memorable or writing a full length memoir, this four-week intensive workshop will help get you started. Together, we’ll work to help you uncover your stories, discuss what the memoir wants, and explore storytelling techniques used by successful memoirists.

In addition, each time we meet, we will write, so plan to go home with the beginnings of several pieces you may use for your own memoir. In addition, we’ll discuss ways to dig deep into your writer’s soul, and strategies to keep on the writing path long after the workshop has ended.
