Writing One-Day Workshop
Wrestling your personal story into a coherent, riveting
narrative is no mean feat. Deciding what not to write
about is often just as important as what to highlight
and expand. This one day workshop will help you see your
story as a narrative arc, to build the foundation of a
memoir that does what life often avoids: a beginning,
a middle, and an end, with a theme.
