Telling the (Loving) Truth About Your Family: A Purposeful Memoir Workshop

November 3, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Families are central to our life stories, and often so complicated. In this three-session writing workshop, we’ll focus on telling family stories with loving respect and clear-sighted honesty­—perhaps with a dash of humor and drama thrown in, to leaven the mix.

Learn how to use description, dialogue and character development to build a well-paced, compelling story. Get the benefit of a productive, encouraging draft workshop, receiving carefully designed and facilitated feedback from your instructor and the group.

You’ll emerge from this workshop with new insights into your family dynamics, and a polished family story that you might even want to share at your Thanksgiving table this year!

There will be time during each class for questions and discussion.

Three Fridays, November 3, 10 & 17, 9 – 10:30 am Eastern. Cost: $120 for all three sessions.
