Event Details

How does a life get translated onto the page? Delve into the construction of the personal narrative with a discussion group and writing workshop dedicated to the memoir. Each month, meetings will focus on a different example of memoir, exploring the motivations and techniques behind some of the genre’s most notable works. For those aspiring to tell their own story, sessions will also offer the opportunity to participate in writing exercises and to workshop original material in a constructive, collaborative setting.

Join us the 1st Friday of each month for writing exercises and workshopping.

Join us the 3rd Friday of each month for discussion of memoir examples and workshopping.
