Memoir Breakthrough: Putting It All Together

Weekend June 27 to June 28 2020

Overwhelmed at the thought of beginning your memoir? Wondering how to make it meaningful yet manageable? Whether your memoir is just a fleeting idea, one page of notes, or an actual rough draft, join us for an engaging, interactive weekend dedicated to answering your questions, clearing hurdles, and offering inspiration and direction. This fast-paced workshop incorporates presentation, Q&A, discussion, exemplary memoir excerpts and selected writing prompts. Open to all levels.


In this workshop, we will generate new writing through exercises and assignments; provide feedback on writing you produce in our weekend.
