The Art of Memoir--Ruth Crocker

Memoirs are true stories. We all have important stories to tell but we struggle with how and where to begin and what to include. The good news is that a memoir is not an entire life story. It is a selection of events that have shaped who we are. In this workshop, we will explore how to choose those life events and situations that form the theme of your story. We’ll work with writing prompts and exercises to help you dig into memory, zero in on the story you want to tell, and ignite the writing process.
