This workshop will dig into the mine shaft of memory, assisting participants  as they unearth and write the stories of their lives. In a casual, relaxed and noncompetitive atmosphere, beginning and/or teenage writers will learn about the creative nonfiction writing process: where our stories come from;  story structure-- writing beginnings that "hook" the reader, middles and effective endings; development of the writer's unique voice; using vivid description;  silencing the inner critic, etc. Handouts will be provided.

Sched is merely a personal agenda-making tool. It does not guarantee you a place in the workshop. To reserve your space, please use our free ticketing system here.
