The Art & Craft of Your Memoir
Monks in Tibet will spend months, sometimes years creating intricate prayer mandala’s composed of different colored sands. When they are done, they let the sands blow away in a ceremonial moment. As a writer, you do the same thing. You work and work, often in solitude and attempt to compose the mandala of your own memory. When do you know when to keep going down one path and when do you know when to let go of another and start again? This class is for the craftsperson who has these and many more questions. This is the first of what I hope will be an ongoing critique circle or “good in the morning” writers. Each week, three to four writers will have the opportunity to read aloud, hear their own voice and get facilitated feedback from their peers and myself. If you are in this class, you have a story to tell and are on your way. This is not a beginning level memoir group. This class is for those who know what they want to write, or have a pretty good idea and are ready to improve their writing in a significant way. All elements of craft will be discussed in this class but most of all, this is your community of support and this class will continue in the fall.
