Memoir Writing Workshop @ Politics & Prose Bookstore this November



I am very excited to announce that I will be teaching a Memoir Writing Workshop at Politics & Prose Bookstore in Washington, D.C., this November.

The class is titled, “Beginning, Middle, or End: Memoir Writing This Holiday Season.” We will read essay selections from The Art of the Personal Essay edited by Phillip Lopate and write original essays that can be woven together into a full memoir. The cost is $100.00 ($80.00 for bookstore members.) The class runs for four Thursday afternoon starting November 3 through December 1 (skipping over Thanksgiving, of course.)

The holiday season is exactly the time to start thinking about your memoir. You’ll be seeing family members who you might not see regularly and have a chance to think about your memories, record new ones and ask necessary questions.
