“But my life isn’t interesting!” many people who want to write memoir tell me. But every life is, especially when you weave in history —be it family legacies, neighborhood landmarks, or the social history that shapes us. Through readings, discussion, and in-class exercises, participants discover new strategies for writing their life stories in ways that friends, family or strangers will want to read on. This workshop focuses on the ways that personal narrative is enriched be history —be it family legacies, neighborhood landmarks, or the social history that shapes us. Open to all levels. Limit to 14.
