Masterclass - Beyond Reality: When Magic Meets Memoir

Echo Brown

What happens when you infuse memoir and magical realism? You get something new, interesting, and bold that's rooted in YOUR story. Writing should never be limited. The frontiers of what can be created are endless. In seeking to stretch the imagination, uncharted terrain can be discovered. The story evolves with more depth beyond reality.

Through partner exercises, group sharing, and lesson modules, we will work toward creating a piece of writing that combines magic and memoir. In this 2 hour masterclass taking place in-person at Loganberry Books, Echo will discuss:

*  Memoir and magic writing tips and techniques
*  Navigating personal experiences for dynamic memories
*  Developing systems of magic
*  Creating compelling, well-rounded protagonists based on your own story
*  The fusion point between memoir and magic

Packed with practical guidance, actionable tactics, and examples from already published books, this class will provide a wellspring of writing guidance.
