Additional Memoir Writing Workshop Section @ Politics & Prose Bookstore in March

Due to popular demand, we opened another section of Memoir Writing Workshop (Mixed Level) at Politics & Prose bookstore in Washington, D.C. I'm excited to be teaching four Mondays in March: March 3, 10, 17, and 24, 1:30 - 3 p.m.

Register today through the bookstore. (The January/February section sold out quickly.)

I look forward to working with you! You're welcome to email me with any questions (Chloemiller(at)gmail(dot)com.)

Class description: 
It's never too early or too late to start fashioning your memories into words. This four-week workshop will offer you the tools to write a memoir by breaking it down into pieces: linked personal essays. The class time and take-home writing assignments will primarily focus on student work. Participants will also respond to writing prompts, workshop drafts, and discuss on-going projects. We will consider issues of editing, revising, organizing research and chapters, as well as some strategies for publication. Students will receive feedback from peers as well as from the instructor.

This class is for you if you are thinking about starting a memoir or have already started to draft some chapters. Or maybe you simply want to try a new writing genre. In-class writing prompts will change every session; you are welcome to take this class more than once.
