Telling our stories matters. The process is almost always transforming for the person writing it, and the result is almost always treasured by those who read or hear it.
I would highly recommend this workshop, even if you’re a novice as I was. Carol is very knowledgeable and encouraging, presenting direction and suggestions for getting started on your writing. While all of the information was incredibly helpful, for me, the “editing questions” were most meaningful, as they helped me “keep on track” in my writing. The encouragement to do daily writing has also been invaluable as it’s helped me to learn to express things more freely, without the “inner critic” taking over!Cathy, Memoir Workshop participant
Is now a good time for you to think about writing your memoir?
Don’t put it off! Sign up for my memoir-writing workshop to get started.
Next workshop begins Oct. 7 and will meet every other Wednesday through Nov. 18. Live video sessions will begin at 4:00 pm MDT and last for 90 minutes.
In these workshops, expect to meet with a small group of other writers — 6 max. I’ll provide short chunks of teaching on topics such as:
- Getting started
- Getting unstuck
- Telling a story
- Balancing vulnerability and privacy
- Editing for energy and clarity
We’ll do some short impromptu writing exercises, then we’ll open it up for anyone who wants to share their memoir writings and give each other constructive feedback. Each participant will also get one 30-min. individual coaching session with me during the month. I’ll also provide a list of suggested memoirs to read because you can learn a lot from authors who have told their stories well.
- Bi-weekly Zoom sessions 90 minutes long
