Creative Nonfiction of the Family and Self: The Memoir Workshop

Are you working on a memoir? Are you the family chronicler? Then SIGN ON UP for this creative nonfiction workshop on crafting the project of the lived life. You will read and discuss personal essays of memoir and family alongside generating, revising, and refining your own work. Discussion will cover such topics as narrative craft, creative liberties, and structuring, among others.

Whether you are just beginning an autobiographical project or have a manuscript you have been working on for some time, this workshop will support its production and revision. It is a workshop for all levels of writers, though participants should have a relevant project ready to work with. As Carmen Giménez says in her exquisite poetry collection Be Recorder, “does it seem impossible // the desire for such validation // or could you // break free and record // be recorder.” Get ready to document!
