Memoir Writing: Telling the World Your Story

- Wednesdays, Nov. 8, 2017 – Jan. 10, 2018, 6:30 pm-8:30 pm

Do you have a story to tell the world? This eight-week workshop is for anyone interested in writing everything from autobiographies to the intimately personal memoir. Research, interviews and soul searching are some of the ingredients that make-up the journey of a good memoir or biography. You will be guided in the process of crafting a well-told story that resonates with readers. Specific writing exercises will be used to help you tap into your creativity and work past writer’s block. The workshop’s goal is to get you started on working on the first draft of your memoir, create an outline for your book or revise previously written work in a nurturing environment with your peers. The instructor will provide guidance and professional critique to assist you in reaching your personal writing goals. Sessions: 8. Registration Fee: $225 ($200 before 10/11/2017, Code: Fall 2017). Instructor: Michel Marriot.

Dates: 11/8, 11/15, 11/29, 12/6, 12/13, 12/20, 1/3/18, 1/10/18. No Workshops: 11/22/17 & 12/27/17.

Michel Marriott: For much of the last 20 years, Michel Marriott had been a staff writer at The New York Times. He has covered numerous beats, including New York’s City Hall, national education, urban poverty and drug abuse, as well the racial and ethnic conflagrations of the Los Angeles and Miami riots. Beginning in 1998, Michel began to write exclusively about high-technology for the newspaper’s weekly Tech section, Circuits, and continues – as a contract writer -- to write about the impact of consumer electronics on American culture. Michel’s work has been twice nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.
