Memoir Writing Workshops @ Politics & Prose Bookstore in Washington, D.C., this February

I am looking forward to teaching two memoir writing workshops in February at Politics & Prose Bookstore in Washington, D.C., on Thursdays in February. Memoir Writing I will run in the mornings (10:00 AM – 11:30 AM) and Memoir Writing II will run in the afternoons (1:00PM – 2:30 PM). For both classes, we will be looking closely at selections from The Art of the Personal Essay: An Anthology from the Classical Era to the Present edited by Phillip Lopate.

I taught my first class at the bookstore in November, Memoir Writing I, and it filled up quickly. Register through the bookstore today to reserve your space.

In these classes, we sit in a circle, write in response to given prompts, discuss student writing and essays assigned from the text. What’s better than spending an hour and a half weekly with like-minded adults writing and discussing writing in a lovely independent bookstore?
