Memoir-writing workshop at The Arts Building in Gibsons

Introduction to MEMOIR WRITING: Share Your Story

Do you feel compelled to write about your life, but don’t know where to begin? Does the idea seem both overwhelming and exciting? Maybe you’ve already got pages of material, but they seem to have no direction.

This fun workshop will inspire you to start or restart your nonfiction narrative, whether it’s book length or an essay. You’ll learn about themes, story structure, point of view, characters, and how to create a chronology and timeline. Explore different approaches through writing exercises and lively discussion. Handouts and a bibliography will give you plenty of examples of successful published memoirs. This workshop is open to writers of all abilities.
