The best way to decipher the truth about yourself is by setting about the sometimes grueling, always revealing, usually embarrassing task of putting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard). How else to process your childhood fear of dolls (guilty as charged), make sense of your obsession with Victorian hair jewelry (guilty again), or wonder what’s at the root of your sibling rivalries. In this 5-day workshop on the essentials of memoir writing, you will learn how to frame a narrative, find a unique voice, reflect on the past through the present and much more. By the end of our week together, you will have a deeper understanding of the form and see that writing memoir is a way to find meaning in our lives, and wrangle art from our pain, trauma, coming of age, and struggles with identity. You know, all the stuff that makes up a life worth examining.
