WHAT WILL WE DO?
This November, Juncture will conduct a very special memoir workshop within a newly renovated, former Bed and Breakfast located just blocks from the sea. We’ll learn from some of the greatest memoirs ever written—and write our own. Through a combination of readings, guided exercises, and critiques, we will acquire a firm understanding of what memoir is (and what it isn’t) and work toward the development of meaningful themes and sustaining scenes. We will generate and refine new pages, craft a prologue, and share our work in evening readings. In the mornings we’ll share breakfast and, during a three-hour craft session, learn. In the afternoon, we’ll walk the beach, find the birds, and write. We’ll meet on the wooden rockers as the sun goes down. Share a special meal as the dark sets in. Then rise to do it all again. A beautifully designed book featuring the images and words of the week will commemorate our time together.
