Do you have a story to tell? Do you have a need to preserve a family legacy, break your silence, explore an ancestor’s past? Do you have a desire to find the next step on your path, show the world that you are more than a worker, sibling, friend, parent or partner? Do you have a desire to get your side of things on the record, to leave a piece of yourself behind? If so, then the Exploring and Writing Memoir Workshop is for you.
Writing memoir can help you to identify the threads and themes in your life and make sense of the life you have lived. It can be healing and transformative. Our Writers Retreat Workshop Intensive leader and author and teacher Susan Hodara will lead us in the two-session memoir writing workshop on Thursday (morning and afternoon). This workshop will provide a safe environment for writers of all levels to discover their unique voices and begin to tell the story of their lives – for themselves, for their loved ones, for their legacy. We’ll be writing and sharing our stories for constructive feedback. We’ll explore a variety of approaches and prompts to help us delve into our pasts and retrieve our most important stories, be they happy or sad, challenging or uplifting.
