Mastering Memoir: A Fall Writing Workshop Series

In this soup-to-nuts, four-month series, you’ll explore your whole memoir journey — understanding what brings you to the page, choosing which story to tell, structuring your narrative, writing energetic prose, keeping your confidence, staying out of court, identifying your markets, and brainstorming publication options. You’ll also learn the many forms this popular genre takes, including self-help memoirs, autoethnographies, story collections, mini-memoirs, personal essays, and memoir portraits.

The workshop is trailed by four three-and-a-half-hour weeknight writing circles at which participants can bring writing to share or other questions about their projects to the table.

Bring paper and pen or a laptop. Perfect for new or struggling memoirists.
