In this workshop, Brooke Warner, publisher of She Writes Press, founder of Warner Coaching Inc., and memoir coach and teacher through the popular program, Write Your Memoir in Six Months, will guide participants through the craft elements that make a memoir sing. This workshop will kick off with an examination of scenes, the building blocks of memoir. From there, writers will get accessible, helpful information about narration, character and characterization, dialogue, flashback and memory, and reflection and takeaway. Each of these elements of craft builds upon the other, and the goal of this workshop will be to explore how everything interconnects. Participants will leave feeling empowered and inspired to execute more compelling, resonant, and meaningful writing.
