Memoir Writing Workshop (virtual)

Sometimes we have a true story from our lives that we’re dying to tell, but we’re unsure how to begin. This hands-on workshop will focus on the essentials of writing a memoir – what makes a good story, how to shape your material so that it’s compelling, what to tell (and omit), how to develop your own unique voice, and the broader issues involved in turning a private experience into a public work.
