Spring 2020 Online: Advanced Memoir

Sundays, May 10 - June 14
2:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Instructor: Natalie Serber

For dedicated writers with previous workshop experience

If the primary purpose of literature is to connect us with humanity, what better way to accomplish that goal than through telling our experiences and how they formed us. And yet, telling our stories is both a challenge and a gift. This workshop is for participants deep into writing their memoir. We will spend our time discussing one another’s work, looking at tools and practices of the form, reading some sample memoir sections, and helping to boost writing stamina as you strive toward a finished draft.

Previous students say:
“Natalie is a suberb teacher and facilitator”
“Natalie was very enthusiastic, supportive and constructive with her comments”
