Memoir and Personal Narrative

Our lives are filled with exciting moments and ordinary ones, good times and trying times, bits and pieces that make us who we are now. During this intensive three-day workshop, we will mine our memories and experiences in order to render our memoirs and short personal essays. Our own stories will be our foundation, and we will learn elements of the craft of writing and effective ways of capturing these moments on the page. We will read from published models and essays, we will write each day. We will leave with work-in-progress and creative paths to pursue after the workshop. Whether your goal is publication or preservation, this workshop is for you. Open to all levels of skill and experience. Instructor: Patricia Ann McNair
