Description

PLEASE NOTE THE NEW DATES FOR THIS WORKSHOP: SATURDAYS (SIX SESSIONS) AUGUST 26-SEPTEMBER 30, 2017

Each life is unique; everyone has a story to tell. Whether you're writing for your family or for publication, the secret to a good memoir is not only the ingredients that go into it, but also the way in which it's told. In this 6-week writing intensive, we will discuss how to:

  • Take the memories and events from your life and turn them into an interesting story
  • Decide which memories and events to write about
  • Do research
  • Organize your ideas, artifacts and time
  • Make your writing clear and readable

We’ll also explore the creative process with writing exercises, readings, and group discussions; and learn what steps to take if you're interested in getting your story published. At the end of the intensive, participants will design a writing plan complete with goals and a timeline, and have the option to create a writing critique group.

As a special add-on for this course, participants may register for individual coaching sessions with the instructor in increments of 30 or 60 minutes.

To register through Eventbrite, select "August 26" for the date and then select your ticket option. If you prefer to register by check, mail your check, and contact information including email address, to Flatiron Writers Room, 5 Covington St., Asheville, NC 28806. You will be registered when we receive your payment if there is space left in the workshop.
