Memoir and Meaning: Writing Your Life Stories

April 21, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


In this workshop, with author and teacher Lorraine Ash,  you will learn to shape your experiences and reflections into compelling prose. In essence, you will pour your stories into a narrative container that will hold them and maximize their power both for you and your readers.

In the process, you’ll come to more deeply recognize and appreciate the meaning in your own sacred journey. The work of fine writers-some famous, some not-will inform and inspire you as your own best writing is evoked in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.

The workshop is perfect for new or struggling memoirists. Bring paper and pen or a laptop.

Presenter: Lorraine Ash

Fee: $55

Date/Time: Saturday, April 21 from 10 am to 5pm
