Do you ever feel overwhelmed about writing your past because it feels like too big of a task? Our memories and thoughts come in fragments. We can push through the opposition by using prompts as a springboard to generate small pieces and find ways into your stories of the past. We will play with language as we learn about the craft of scene, summary, reflection, and causal logic. “Even if you were in prison,” the writer Rainer Maria Rilke wrote, “wouldn’t you still have your childhood, that treasure of memory?” He believed in bringing our perceptions into language where it can live again. Come and begin.
