Purposeful Memoir as a Path to a Thriving Future

August 30 @ 2:00 pm 4:00 pm

Exploring the Deep Background of Childhood

Spend two hours in good company, probing the people, places and events that loom large in your childhood memories, asking a question you won’t often find raised in memoir classes: What were you conditioned as a child “to accept as an immutable given in the fabric of your existence”? 

Asking this question reveals the often unspoken social compacts that we were conditioned, as children, to understand as normal—so ordinary and conventional that we absorbed them without question. 

Read more about the premise of this workshop on my Writing Life blog, here, and join me on August 30, live online via Zoom, for a fun, productive two hours of writing and (always optional) sharing.

This workshop series is open to drop-ins–take one or come to the whole series! Find out more about the series here.
