Enter and Explore Your Emotional Truth
—Then Write it Down
We know the particulars of our lives—the facts of when and where we were born, the cities in which we lived, the name of our high school crush—but memoir is more than the chronological presentation of these facts or an orderly procession of places and dates. Memoir writing urges us to break the surface, cut through to the emotional truth underneath, and to record and share our experiences without guilt, regret, or shame. In this workshop we explore what it means to remember and how to make our past come alive with the written word. We study the mind and the meandering way the mind remembers. We relax into the heart of our lives and let the stories inside us unfold.
