Saturdays, Jan 31 through March 7, 12:00 noon to 2:00 p.m (six sessions) Peggy Shumaker and Joseph Usibelli Creative Writing Alumni Room, Poetry Center.
The best memoirs are more than just a good story. They have a univrsal significance that connects and resonates with the reader. In this memoir writing workshop, we will look to the edges of our lives for significant stories. Edges are where life adjusts, changes, teems, a marginal region that exists without borders, physical or theoretical, a place where something new might evolve out of the muck. The place of prisons and landfills, story and memoir. We will also look closely at the craft of writers such as Terry Tempest Williams, Annie Dillard, Scott Russell Sanders, and others, and apply their techniques to our own writing.
Participants will be expected to bring their own writing and share it with the group in an informal setting.
