Maybe it's My Imagination: Writing Memoir and Fiction

Memoir writing Maybe it happened; or maybe it didn’t. Either way, whether writing memoir or fiction, we can use the same elements of craft: scene, summary, inciting action, characterization. But it really comes down to putting some words on the page and seeing how you can shape them. This workshop is open to both new and experienced writers. We will have some in-class writing, but most of your writing will be done at home, then shared in a supportive group. The instructor will provide class readings, writing prompts, and drugstore hard candy.
