Meets at Literary Arts, 925 SW Washington
Instructor: Emilly Prado

In this weekend intensive, we’ll exercise, explore, and spark the memory part of memoir using personal objects, music, food, sketching, and more. We’ll consider the concepts of memory, truth, and authenticity in writing and apply them to the seeds of new pieces.
