Memoir Writing

Monday April 13, 2015
2:30 pm to 5:00 pm

Registration Required

Organization: Women's Health Resource Center

Capture your story in a meaningful, fun and productive way. In this four-part series we will apply the building blocks of fiction to your memoir to help you create dynamic characters and build that all-important dramatic tension in your work. Students will read their work aloud and receive feedback in a supportive environment. To that end, please bring one to two pages to read aloud for the first class.
