Writing a Memorable Memoir

Monday (6:00-7:00pm)
February 6 - March 6
By Zoom or Asynchronously
Taught by Lita Kurth
For adults and mature teens (16+)

“Artistic growth is more than anything else, a refining of the sense of truthfulness. The stupid believe that to be truthful is easy; only the artist, the great artist, knows how difficult it is.” Willa Cather


A memoir is a work of art and truth. It is carved from the marble of facts, never the whole truth, the entire block of marble, much less the quarry from which the marble came. In this supportive class designed to help you start or continue your memoir and find its focus, we will write (with optional sharing or additional writing in the last half-hour). We will practice memoir methods that can give others a deep sense of our experience.


This class is available as a Zoom class (with feedback on 25 pages by email) Mondays 6:00-7:00, or as a “correspondence course” whereby detailed lesson plans will be mailed and 25 pages will receive response. Students will also receive tips on where to submit memoir.
