Truth and Connection:
A Course in Memoir

5 Mondays in July 2024 —
Exact dates will be announced shortly.

Location: Zoom
For adults
Tuition: $250

Memoir is such a valuable pursuit. As readers and listeners, it draws us in a special way because we have the honor of being welcomed into someone’s actual experiences and truthful reflections. As writers, we find ourselves remembering long-forgotten events and, as we write, coming to new understandings of ourselves and the world.
No one who can write an essay is too young to write memoir pieces, and no one is too old. Nor does one need special experiences. In this five-week Zoom class, we’ll look at examples and practice techniques that can help us capture vividly our version of experiences. The class will offer encouragement, a safe environment, examples, prompts, very brief writing  sprints, a discussion of common challenges, leads to publication (if desired), leads to further books, websites, and podcasts, and feedback on 25 (double-spaced) pages of your work. In the optional last half-hour, you may share your work and write to more prompts if you wish.
