“IN THE EARLY DAYS OF WRITING MEMOIR, WE STAND WAIST-HIGH IN TALL GRASS. OUR FEET SINK INTO THE EARTH. THE BIRDS CIRCLE. THE STORY BLOOMS.” – BETH KEPHART

WHAT WILL WE DO?

It’s not just the narrating “I” who must come to vibrant life in memoir; it’s every other character who enters into the tale. In this three-day workshop, participants will learn the art of character development by reading master memoirists during morning sessions and responding to guided prompts. During afternoon workshops, participants will receive group critiques of up to 1500 words of essays or memoirs in progress. Sessions will run from 10 AM to 4 PM Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

IS IT RIGHT FOR YOU?

Whether crafting true stories out of the stuff of memory is a life-long passion or a newly emerging one, this workshop will provide opportunities for you to grow as both a writer and a person. It will also provide a respite—three days in the historic town of Wayne, which is just a train ride away from Philadelphia.
