Memoir Writing 2: Letting Our Stories Live!

ID : 8791   
« back to classes page

It’s the Golden Age of memoir and anyone can write about their lives. An abundance of stories lives inside us, from the wildly adventurous to the simple but poignant. Whether we want to write a memoir about our entire life or some short pieces about a cross country adventure, a wedding gone wildly nuts, or a memory of our grandmother’s apple pie, it all begins with our stories, recollected and written down. 

For those who’ve already taken Memoir Writing: Exploring Memories and Meaning, we will have completely new in-class writing exercises in this workshop, exploring significant moments and bringing them to life with the sounds, smells and sensations that keep them alive in our hearts and available for others to enjoy and value. If this is something you’ve been wanting to do for a while, maybe it’s time to seize the day and do it. There’s no time like the present to enjoy writing about your past, and having a blast doing it.

Both Memoir Writing: Exploring Memories and Meaning and Memoir Writing: Letting Our Stories Live! complement one another with different exercises on themes of Memoir.
