Micro-Memoirs: A Two-Part Writing Workshop
In this two-part workshop, we will write micro-memoirs - picturing moments of your life as story or poetry. We will explore writing the essential image, event, and perceptions that color your life. We will read examples, enjoy fun practice exercises, and write to prompts. Imbue your flash memoir with insight. Look into description, tone, dialogue, point of view, literary devices, and the twist! Open to writers of all levels.
