We often feel an urge to leave an account of our lives as we sort through the events, times, and people that shaped us. No matter our age or our reason, we must present these life stories so they don’t languish, unread, on our computer or in a desk drawer. And we must stay with it, however that takes place: finishing a memoir, finetuning an essay, writing of other times and other experiences. This workshop will help you get underway, confident and enthused, through class instruction, exercises and sharing your writing for teacher and student feedback.
