“You own everything that happened to you.”—Anne Lamott
This workshop will focus on writing your memories into poetry or prose with discussion, examples, and in-class writing prompts designed to help you mine the rich territory of your past. We’ll generate a lot of seeds for future work and look at some ways to structure your material. You should leave this workshop with a handful of beginnings, as well as many ideas to inspire further exploration.
