All in the Family: A Memoir Workshop

Mon, 12 Jun, 2017 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM

This six week workshop will be dedicated to your memories of family. Excerpts from memoirs and essays by authors such as Richard Hoffman, Vivian Gornick, Phillip Lopate, Maggie Nelson, and Joann Beard will complement your writing. Participants will work on creating three-dimensional portraits of people close to them, transforming memories into viable scenes, capturing and recreating dialogue, and cultivating a voice which creates space for objectivity, reflection, and meaning. Participants will also discuss the question of revealing vs. withholding, and where delving deeper is necessary and desirable. The workshop format will allow for generating new writing and receiving feedback from the instructor and peers. Please bring ideas of what you would like to work on during this series to the first meeting. Note: No meeting July 3 and July 10.
