This memoir workshop will provide a window into important times in your life: how it was for you to grow up in your home, to survive adolescence, what made you who you are. Simple exercises and prompts will result in your writing short vignettes. We will write in class, have homework assignments, and will work with approaches to revision. You will be able to share your writing and make editorial suggestions for one another in a safe, supportive environment.
