Fighting the Ego: How to Get Real in Memoir
This workshop is part of our Memoir & Creative Nonfiction Week.
In a confidential environment the workshop will focus on unmasking the many selves that keep us from putting the truth on the page. Through in-class prompts and daily assignments, we will explore the creative rewards of risk. We will also workshop each other’s submitted work.
Please submit a memoir except or personal essay of no more than 1,500 to Dawn Walsh at firstname.lastname@example.org by June 14.
