Memoir

Instructor: Hannah Palmer


Everyone has a story to tell; not everyone writes a memoir. What makes the difference? And what distinguishes a well-written chronicle of the past from a page-turning, must-read that taps into universal themes? Whether you’re just starting the process of recording your memories, or shaping your work for publication, this workshop will help you organize your ideas and elevate your writing. We’ll set goals together, then talk about favorite memoirs and research techniques each week as we workshop our writing.

Class limit is 12.
