Deadline to Register: March 20, 11:59 pm

 Have you ever wanted to write a memoir? Share your life stories with family and friends? Do you have a story to tell that might inspire or challenge others? This special workshop will provide you with the basic steps for creating a powerful and compelling memoir. First we’ll examine memoir composition and discuss key elements of anecdotal writing. Then, using handouts as a guide, you’ll choose a relevant theme for your memoir and select the first stories you’ll want to share. Following a timed writing activity, participants will discuss and critique their work. You’ll leave the workshop ready to polish and complete your very first memoir!
