This interactive workshop is for writers of all levels who would like to create a memoir that values the struggles in their lives, makes sense of them, and explores their meaning. The focus will be practical and designed to help participants make rapid progress with their memoirs. We will discuss the reasons for writing a memoir, how to plan and structure it, how to collect ideas (including ones long forgotten), how to develop character, how to tell powerful and effective stories, how to deal with conflict, how to write scenes with dialogue, how to find your voice, and how to deal with sensitive issues that might hurt other family members.
