The Story You Want to Tell: Intro to Memoir Writing- A Three-Part Series In-Person
Have a story—or many stories— to tell, but don’t know how to put the words down on paper? In these sessions we’ll explore both memoir and creative writing through a variety of activities. Participants will read and discuss short pieces of literature, respond to writing prompts, and have the opportunity to share their efforts in a safe and friendly workshop setting. All levels of experience are welcome.
