Memoir Writing

If you have ever wanted to write about your life or your family, this workshop will give you the tools for it. Participants will learn about freewriting, shutting out your inner grammar teacher, distinguishing junk from jewels, and sharing your thoughts safely with others. Bring to the workshop one (or more) of the following: an intriguing photo (Who is the elegant woman, flanked by 2 men, one of whom smiles suspiciously?); an heirloom (imagine the stories surrounding it); a song that echoes in your mind (remember the times when it was played); a smell that haunts you (trace its origins and feelings).
