Event description

Description

Everyone has a story to tell. Ten people at the same historical event will tell a different version. Our perspective and experience is individual, unique, and valuable.

Whether it’s for your own personal satisfaction, for your family or to tell the world, Write to Remember is a memoir-writing introductory workshop using prompts to help focus each memory and start you on the fascinating journey of writing your life. The session will cover the different types of memoir, where and how to start, the craft of writing, how to edit and how/where to publish.

Using basic creative writing techniques, we will look at how to construct a short story in memoir form which makes a satisfying read. Informative handouts will give you the confidence to continue this writing process at home.

Please bring an object as a memory prompt, a notebook and pen, and a willingness to share and listen.

Session facilitator Sarah McIntosh has published as S. Dyer with the memoir short story, First Class Compartment in the anthology, You Won’t Remember This, edited by Sandy Bennett-Haber (2016).
