Suddenly, our entire world has changed. We are living in what feels like extraordinary times. But the truth is our lives have always held the shape of a mythic journey. Telling the story of that journey is exactly the work of writing a memoir.
In this four-week writing workshop, we will use our present circumstances as an opportunity to see our lives in a bigger way, with more bravery and heart. We will explore the “sudden now” as well as the “then,” times in our past when we were faced big changes. Let’s open up the borders, write about what scares us, what thrills us, what we hope for, what we love, what we’ve learned.
We will talk about what writing memoir means, especially in times like this. And we will write, allowing our stories to emerge organically. This workshop is for all levels. You do not have to consider yourself a writer to take this class.
The class will be a blend of discussions (20%), in-class writing (30%) and sharing of written material (50%). Each week, the Instructor will email a writing prompt and accompanying craft considerations to jumpstart writing at home.
