Memoir 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.
