      Write Your Life Story: A 6-Week Memoir Writing Intensive

      PLEASE NOTE THE NEW DATES FOR THIS WORKSHOP: AUGUST 26-SEPTEMBER 30, 2017 Each life is unique; everyone has a story to tell. Whether you're writing for your family or for publication, the secret to a good memoir is not only the ingredients that go into it, but also the way in which it's told. In this 6-week writing intensive, we will discuss how to: Take the memories and events from your life and turn them into an interesting story Decide which memories and events to write about Do research Organize your ideas, artifacts and time Make your writing clear and readable  We’ll also explore the creative process with writing exercises, readings, and group discussions; and learn what steps to take if you're interested in getting your story published.  At the end of the intensive, participants will design a writing plan complete with goals and a timeline, and have the option to create a writing critique group.
