An event every week that begins at 1:00pm on Thursday, repeating until May 28, 2020
Memoir is an ever-growing sub-genre within creative non-fiction, embraced by both writers and readers. Writing memoir helps us explore our lives through remembrance, imagination, and what Henry James called “the process of vision.” Memories can help us find the beauty, express true feelings, laugh at our foibles, and understand our world through an adult lens. “Without memory,” writer William Giraldi says, “imagination is impotent.”
In this writing workshop, we will draw upon sensory memory to coax the writer in all of us out of hiding, recognizing that memory can be a writer’s best friend. Through prompts, readings, and constructive feedback in a safe environment, participants will sharpen their creative expression and explore the forces that have shaped each of us.
Class will meet Thursdays, April 30, May 7, 14, 21, 28.
