Exciting news! I’ll be teaching a Memoir workshop through Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College’s Continuing Education Program starting on September 20, 2016. It’s a 6-week class that will meet on Tuesday evenings from 6-8 p.m. and I’m super-excited. It’s been 11 years since I got my MFA in Creative Nonfiction and I’ve been doing a whole lot of other stuff since then, so it’ll be great to return to my favorite genre and share it with others who want to tell their stories. I didn’t get to write the class description but I think it’s pretty good:
Come and explore memoirs as a literary genre wherein you will use your creativity and verbal prowess to preserve and share memories. By reading and listening to sample memoirs, engaging in critical discussions about style and technique and employing writer’s workshop strategies, you will write your own short memoir piece (or pieces) expressing memories as you like to remember them. Arrive ready to share and listen with an open mind; the personal nature of the memoir is only one of many reasons we conduct this class with mutual respect and open-mindedness to the experiences, opinions and varying talents of those around us.
