Truth and Connection:
A Course in Memoir

Monday (6:00-7:30pm)
October 9 - November 13
Zoom (link receieved after enrollment)
Taught by Lita Kurth
For adults and mature teens (16+)

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 coming to new understandings of remembered ones.


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 six-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 if you wish.
