Some of the first things we ask someone we’ve just met are: “What do you do?” “Where did you grow up?” and “How did you meet your girlfriend/boyfriend/spouse?” In other words, “What’s your story?”
In this workshop, we will focus upon the craft of writing about our own lives in either the personal essay or memoir form.
Each week, you will have the chance to bring in up to 5 double-spaced pages of work you have done outside of class to be shared and discussed. All feedback is given in an encouraging atmosphere and will focus on what is strong and memorable in your writing. If time allows, there will be in-class writing prompts.
Come join us and share your stories!
