Memoir is a search for deeper identity and, at its best, reveals some hard-won truth about the human experience. When you write your life stories, you explore “I” in all its iterations — the self whose understanding of the world changes over time. In this workshop you will learn to shape your experiences and reflections, which are the essence of your own evolution, into narrative prose. In other words, you will pour your stories into a literary container that will hold them and maximize their power for you and your readers. In the process, you’ll come to more deeply recognize and appreciate the value of all you have endured. The work of established writers will inform and inspire you as your own best writing is evoked in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.
