Learn how to use adapted techniques from the journalist’s toolbox to write true stories from your own life.
Kickstart your personal essay and memoir writing in this accessible workshop where we will experiment with tools adapted from journalism to help you write a personal essay that embodies the emotional truth of a story from your life. From writing a compelling opening, to researching for descriptive details, you will become a more observant reporter of your own life.
Each session will offer a simple adapted technique to experiment with, time for writing, and a supportive writing community to write with.
Whether you are just beginning your writer’s journey or are a more experienced non-fiction writer looking for a new approach, you’ll gain new ideas, and tools you can use again and again.
