Strategies for Memoir & Creative Nonfiction


Friday, September 19, 2014 - Friday, October 24, 2014
1:30 pm - 4:00 pm


“We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect,” wrote Anaïs Nin. This is the perfect opportunity to engage our senses and foray into memoir, creative nonfiction and personal essay. Inspired by handouts and writing prompts, participants will share and discuss their writing in a stimulating atmosphere of collaborative exploration. Continuing and new writers welcome.

6 Fridays, 1:30-4:00 p.m., 9/19/2014 – 10/24/2014
