From Life to the Page—Memoir Writing
Time & Location
About the Event
"Writers are the custodians of memory, and memories have a way of dying with their owner. One of the saddest sentences I know is 'I wish I had asked my mother about that.’” —William Zinsser, Writing About Your Life: A Journey Into the Past
Personal essays? Memoir? Family histories? Do you find yourself reminiscing and wanting to share your story with your loved ones?
Whatever you label your ideal writing, whatever your experience, this class will help you uncover your own stories and turn them into fresh prose—accounts you enjoy writing and that family and close ones enjoy reading. Your writing will lead to a deeper understanding of your history and an account to share with others: loved ones, a broader audience, or perhaps just yourself.
This class is limited to 6 students.
6 weeks, starting March 3rd (with the exception of March 17th off)
3/3, 3/10, 3/24, 3/31, 4/7, 4/14
