Writing the Memoir: A Workshop

June 3, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm


Through a collection of essays and poem examples, we’ll have a chance to uncover memories about significant life experiences. Then we’ll shape our stories into prose or poetry.

During the workshop, gentle feedback by class members and the writing instructor will help us emphasize our personal style of expression for those who wish to share.

Presenter: Karen Rippstein

Time: Saturday, June 3, 2017 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.  (Includes buffet lunch.)

Fee: $45
