Intro to Memoir – 4 weeks (with Celia Jeffries) – ONLINE
February 7 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm EST
We all have memories that stay with us. Somewhere inside them is usually a story. It may be highly subjective, but more often than not, it holds a universal truth. How do you get to that truth? How do you create a story that has energy and depth and speaks to the reader? This workshop will focus not only on WHAT is being written but also on HOW it is written. Through writing exercises, readings, and discussions of both nonfiction and fiction, we will explore techniques to awaken the personal story on the page. While writers will not be submitting work to the group for feedback, there will be lots of opportunities after in-class writing to share with the group for brief, supportive, on-the-spot feedback.
Limited to 10 writers.
WHEN: 4 Weeks: Tuesdays, February 7 – 28 (1 – 3pm EST)
WHERE: Online, via Zoom video conference (live)
