Memoir and Motherhood
In this three-hour workshop, you will begin to shape a narrative around the motherhood stories you want to tell. Using a creative process that identifies key memories and themes, you will write stories about your experience with motherhood, whether it comes from being a mother or being mothered. We will also address the ethical dilemmas that arise with memoir writing. What techniques can you use to tell your stories and still distance yourself and your loved ones from direct exposure? You will come away from this session with alternatives and best practices.
