Free Writing Workshop on Memoir



I will be teaching a free writing workshop for adults at the Cary Memorial Library, 1874 Massachusetts Avenue in Lexington, Massachusetts between 1 and 3 PM on Thursday, June 1st. Participants will be introduced to some of the key elements of writing memoir. Using a visualization exercise, each participant will write the first draft of a scene that explores a vivid moment in his or her life. We will also discuss the importance of personal desire, obstacles and story arc in memoir. The workshop will offer in-class and take home writing prompts, examples from published memoirs, and opportunities for questions, sharing and discussion.

Space in the workshop is limited. If you are interested, please contact Matt Schuman at the Cary Memorial Library: 781-862-6288 extension 84452, or sign up through this link:
