Telling Our Stories - A Memoir Writing Workshop
Our Stories - a memoir writing workshop Tuesdays, January 7- February 11, 2020, 6 - 8 pm
Everyone has stories to tell. This six-session workshop on writing memoir will emphasize discovering those important, meaningful life stories and getting them down on paper. Participants will work collaboratively during each session to shape their stories and give feedback to other writers in a safe and non-judgmental space. Writers of all levels of experience are welcome and will be able to progress at their own pace. Each meeting will last two hours, and at the conclusion of the workshop there will be an (optional) reading by participants on Friday, February 14, 5-7 pm at the Art Accelerated gallery in Tillamook.
Class size will be limited to 8 participants.
