LOCATION: Writespace at Silver Street Studios, 2000 Edwards #208, Houston, TX 77007 LEVEL: All Levels CAP: Limited to 15 Writers You have a memoir—a life story—that you know needs to be written. But how? There is so much to tackle in crafting a memoir, no matter the length. Where do you begin? How do you shape a memory into a story that engages readers? How do you sustain their interest? In this workshop, we will explore the important turning points in your life, so you can choose the one(s) that merit your attention. We’ll also examine the popular themes in memoir so you know how to market your finished work for publication, if you so desire. We’ll discuss memoir and truth, answering questions about whose truth is found in the story. . . or is there any? Finally, everyone will discover the natural arc, the inner change, that comes from overcoming life’s challenges, which is so crucial in a credible memoir. Participants will have prompts to practice skills in discovering these elements of memoir and can expect to have the opening of a long memoir or a completed first draft of a short memoir piece by the end of this workshop.
