Starting Your Memoir

Starting Your Memoir

Meeting Room 115, Goodman South Madison Library
01/30/2018
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The stories of our lives connect generations and communities. That’s a priceless gift, one anyone can create, with guidance.

In this workshop for beginning writers, we will explore different aspects of writing a memoir. Whether you want to share your own life experiences or pass on your family’s stories, this class will help you get started. We’ll spend six sessions remembering and writing together. You'll learn to structure your stories, convey the essence of places and events, and deal ethically with writing about living people.

For each class meeting, students write a few pages on their life experiences. I suggest topics but encourage participants to write on whatever motivates them. Each class meeting includes time to share writing in a supportive environment. To enhance small-group interaction, enrollment is limited to 15. Attendees should bring paper and pen/pencils for in-class exercises. Participants should commit to attending all sessions if possible.

"I truly enjoyed this class and I think you are a phenomenal teacher. You created a welcoming and opening environment and it was a joy to participate. You have given me tools I will use for the rest of my life as a writer." - Hayley S.
