Quick Links

The Sisters Library features 8,300 square feet of space, all housed in an exterior design that includes a partial wraparound porch with the Western appearance for which Sisters is famous. Though the building itself was constructed in 2005, Sisters has a tradition of library service that goes back decades.

In addition to a robust selection of books, music, and DVDs, the library also offers public computers as well as children’s story times and adult programming in the community meeting room. The interior design features vaulted ceilings and a gas fireplace that creates a cozy reading area. Rotating art and quilt exhibitions reflect the talent of the local community. Free WiFi is available throughout the building.

    Memoir re-creates the most pivotal experiences of a person’s life.A week prior to workshop, students will submit the opening pages of a memoir-in progress or a short narrative essay (3-6 pages double spaced) for instructor and peer feedback. Through lively discussion of student manuscripts, short writing exercises, examples of published texts, and mini lectures, students will be introduced to a variety of narrative techniques and approaches used in memoir writing, particularly those related to structure, form, point-of-view, theme; and the relationship between narrative and exposition.In the last half hour of the class, we will discuss strategies for querying and finding a literary agent. Students will leave the workshop with a better understanding of the strengths and weaknesses in their prose, in addition to learning more about the organizing principle of their memoir, the revision process, and what form best suits their narratives.Lindsay Wong holds a BFA in creative writing from the University of British Columbia and an MFA in literary nonfiction from Columbia University in New York City. Her fiction and nonfiction have appeared in No Tokens, The Fiddlehead, Ricepaper Magazine, and Apogee Journal.
