Odyssey: Sharing Our Stories

Everyone has a story to tell, and writing a memoir is a great way to share yours. One way to make your memoir stand out from the crowd is to apply the techniques of fiction to writing nonfiction. In this workshop, appropriate both for beginners and experienced writers, award-winning memoirist Barbara Morrison will help you begin writing yours. After looking at different kinds of memoirs, we will combine in-class writing exercises with instruction on subjects such as creating dynamic scenes and structuring your story. There will be opportunities to critique each other's work using constructive and positive suggestions. Begin today to transform your experiences into stories that will touch others.
