    Refine the art of “showing, not telling” and replace dreary, flat writing with expressive, descriptive prose. Write honestly by sharpening your skill in describing the emotional landscape of your memoir without over-writing or coming across as melodramatic. Improve your craft through clear description, imagery, and metaphor. If you are struggling with painful memories of addiction, abuse, or shame, this workshop will help you have the courage to write with clarity, self-awareness, and strength.
