This revision workshop is for creative nonfiction and memoir writers.
In this regenerative class, we will explore the soul of deep writing–of memoir and personal writing. To understand both ourselves and the world we know, we must look deeply into our writing at what it is trying to tell us. Consider this class part psychotherapy, part cartography, and part anthropology. We will uncover the reason we choose the words we do. We will look at how the words we choose provide direction and we will practice typing our stories to the larger story of humankind. Come prepared with a short work of memoir or personal writing, a metaphorical trowel, and a desire to become couch, coach, and therapist to your story!
This class will be taught online using Zoom. Login instructions will be emailed at the time of workshop registration. Please check spam filters or email [email protected]
