Want to write a memoir that stands out? This workshop will inspire you to play with the memoir form in creative, delightful, nontraditional ways, such as switching up point of view (who says memoir has to be in first person?), playing around with metaphor to get at your memoir’s theme, and taking some advice from Emily Dickenson: “Tell the truth but tell it slant.”

We'll read excerpts from writers who have discovered fresh approaches in crafting their memoirs. Writing prompts will encourage you to experiment with voice, verb tense, and points of view to craft your own story. While sharing is encouraged, it is never required.
