Finding Your Memoir Voice

Time: 10:30 AM-1:00 PM
Dates: 3/6/2019–4/24/1983
Location: Bethesda
Level: Intermediate
Genre(s): Nonfiction

Workshop Leader: Emily Rich and Desirée Magney
Having a great story is just the first step to writing a compelling piece of memoir. In this class, participants will explore what takes a piece of personal writing “from draft to craft,” looking at elements such as character development, incorporating sensory detail, and writing in scenes. This class will focus on the importance of taking a story that’s true and connecting it, as Cheryl Strayed says, “to the greater, grander truth.” In addition to workshopping each other's writing, participants will read essays on craft and sample works of successful memoirists. When the course is over, participants will come away with an appreciation of what makes a piece of memoir stand out and appeal to an audience beyond themselves.
