Workshop

Shaping Stories: Intermediate Memoir Writing

With: 
Eliese Colette Goldbach

One of the most difficult parts of memoir writing is shaping a real experience into a compelling story. As writers, we have an array of useful tools at our fingertips. We have dialogue. We have description. We can develop vivid characters, and we can experiment with form and structure. But how do we use those elements to tell a story that grips our readers? Not only will this course help you refine the "building blocks" of memoir writing, it will also teach you to transform a "true" experience into a page-turner.
