Upcoming Memoir Classes: Free Intro Class & Monthly Manuscript Class

I hope you’ll join us for two upcoming classes:

Free Introduction To Memoir
Tuesday, May 13th
1:30 – 3:30 pm
If you've thought about committing your life story to paper for future generations, Guy Mason Recreation Center is the place to be on Tuesday, May 13. At 1:30 p.m., writing coach Chloe Yelena Miller will lead a free interactive workshop on How to Start Writing Your Memoir. Bring pens and paper or a charged laptop to participate. Sign-up and direction questions to Events(at)GloverParkVillage(dot)org or call 202-436-5545

Private Memoir Manuscript Workshop
I’ll be leading a private memoir manuscript workshop starting this July. In addition to dedicating class time exclusively to each manuscript, we’ll discuss editing, revising, narrative arc, possible ethical and moral concerns, ordering of chapters and submitting a manuscript for publication. These discussions will emerge from student manuscripts. By offering feedback on someone else’s work, your own editing and revising skills will strengthen.

The class is limited to eight students, and two manuscripts will be discussed during each class. You’ll be expected to carefully read and prepare feedback for the other students’ manuscripts. The first class will be dedicated to a discussion of craft, drafting, revising, and more.  

If you are considering this class, you should have a manuscript that is 75-150 pages long. Please send me 10-15 pages (Times New Roman, 12 point font, double-spaced) by June 1st to be considered for the class. Email your materials to: Chloemiller(at)gmail(dot)com

Monthly Memoir Manuscript Workshop
5 sessions: 2nd Tuesday of every month, 7-9 pm
dates: July 8, August 12, September 9, October 14, & November 11
Cost: $250.00 per student (payable by cash, check or Paypal invoice)
The class is limited to 8 students.
The class will share materials via email.
We will meet in a private conference room 19th and M Streets, NW, near the Farragut West & Dupont Circle Metros
