Memoirists are often accused of self-absorption, but memoirs need not be only about the self. They can also be about the world — or worlds — that each one of us contains. These constellations of people, places and times are precious in their particularity and should be rescued from historical erasure. We can save them by committing them to the page. In this workshop we’ll look at examples of lost worlds that have been captured in memoir and memoir-essays, and we’ll work on reconstructing some of our own.
