The Alchemy of Purposeful Memoir

March 25, 2023 @ 10:00 am - March 26, 2023 @ 12:00 pm

Whether you are actively working on a memoir project, or just want to spend a stimulating weekend writing in good company, this inspiring online weekend workshop will give you new insights and entry points into your life story. There will be three 2-hour workshop sessions: Saturday morning, Saturday afternoon, and Sunday morning.

Using the framework developed in my two award-winning writer’s guides, The Elemental Journey of Purposeful Memoir and Purposeful Memoir as a Quest for a Thriving Future, we’ll work through a series of open-ended writing catalysts that will get you thinking more deeply about both the high points and the challenges of your life experience—saluting the positive and transmuting the negative through the alchemical process of purposeful writing.

Time for sharing and small-group discussion, using my time-tested protocol for productive peer feedback, will offer opportunities for deep listening to self and others, as we honor the commonalities and differences among those in our circle.
