Join me at West Valley Community Campus in Willamina, Oregon for a two-day workshop in creative nonfiction. We’ll read and write together for two days in beautiful Yamhill County. This workshop works well for both newer and emerging writers.
Saturday, November 23 & Sunday, November 24 – 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days
We’ll break for an hour lunch each day.
The most successful works of memoir, whether books or essays, combine self-imagination, a bare naked heart and a fearless dose of honesty. This workshop will be structured around finding our way into this place. Read excerpts, write, share work, and discuss different methods of non-fiction storytelling. We will investigate ways to unearth material from our lives and learn constructive editing techniques. Our focus together will be generating new work—you’ll likely leave with several fragments and starts, and one longer piece to return to on your own.
