WHAT WILL WE DO?
This November, Juncture will conduct a 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 think about home and time in memoir. We’ll talk about how to handle the truth in an age of alternative narratives. We’ll work toward the development of meaningful themes and sustaining scenes. In the mornings we’ll share breakfast and, during a three-hour craft session, learn. In the afternoon, following a group lunch, we’ll walk the beach, find the birds, and write. A second group session will be conducted each afternoon. Every participant will spend 30 minutes in a private session with Beth. A beautifully designed book featuring the images and words of the week will commemorate our time together.
