Writers Workshop: Mastering Memoir (September 28)

Sat, September 28, 2019

9:00 AM – 1:00 PM PDT

Twin Pines Lodge

40 Twin Pines Lane

Belmont, CA 94002

Cost: $75

In this four-hour workshop, you’ll take a deep dive into the craft of memoir with memoir expert and enthusiast Brooke Warner. Brooke brings energy and passion to her teaching of memoir, supporting writers to find ways to make their stories bigger and more meaningful than simply “what happened.”

In this workshop, Brooke will guide writers through the most important craft elements—scene, narration, character development/characterization, memory and flashback, reflection and takeaway. The workshop will include an examination of popular memoirs that execute these elements of craft beautifully so that writers will grasp how to implement what they learn into their own writing.

Whether you’re a beginning memoirist or well into your project, this workshop will give you hands-on strategies to deepen your work and, most importantly, write scenes and characters that make readers care. Brooke’s deep experience and love of memoir makes this course both fun and inspiring, and we’d love to have you join us.
