× Want to explore telling your life story? What stories are important to tell? How do we write about ourselves and others? Join me as we explore writing our stories using a variety of fiction and non-fiction techniques including poetry, letters, essays, short-stories and traditional memoir. This class will focus on memoir prompts, and getting your work published. This class will provide space for peer critique and feedback. Select classes on publishing will be open to all Workman Arts members and will be advertised closer to the dates.
