Downtown Bend: Writers Writing - Memoir Workshop
Saturday, May 19, 2018
Commit stories from your life to paper.
Many of us feel drawn to commit stories from our lives to paper. Often though, the process seems intimidating or overwhelming. Learn an approachable style of memoir writing from local writer Sarah Sennott Cyr in this afternoon workshop.
Inspired by the work of Natalie Goldberg (Writing Down the Bones), you'll learn how to write with prompts for a set period of time, with the goal of developing a consistent writing practice. We'll examine the genre of the "baby memoir," or memoir essay, and generate a long list of topics for you to continue your work well beyond this workshop.
This is an all-levels workshop. Beginners encouraged.
Bring a fast-writing pen and notebook.
