In this workshop for high school teachers and teens 14 and older, WITS writer Courtenay Hameister will explore the art of writing memoir.  Participants will work on writing personal versions of common experiences, based on prompts provided by Hameister, and then share their versions to create and understand stories with multiple perspectives.

Courtenay Hameister is a columnist, playwright, and screenwriter whose projects include co-writing the web series The Benefits of Gusbandry and the satirical stage adaptations Roadhouse: The Play! and Lost Boys: Live!. She also created the storytelling series True Stories and SEED, and was the host and head writer for the nationally syndicated radio show Live Wire for a decade. Her first book, Okay Fine Whatever: The Year I Went From Being Afraid of Everything to Only Being Afraid of Most Things, is due in late 2017 from Little, Brown.
