It’s Your Story: A Memoir-Intensive Workshop with Nancy Shohet West

Sundays, May 1, 15, 22 (Note: no session on 5/8)
Does the idea of writing your memoir tempt you — or intimidate you — or maybe both? No matter what your age, you’ve had unique experiences worth retelling. Where you’ve lived, what you’ve created, whom you’ve influenced and been influenced by, what your passions are, what challenges you’ve faced down: these are all aspects of your life worth exploring in writing. The process of writing a memoir can be therapeutic, creative, informative, or some combination of all of these. Deciding where to begin, what to cover, what to omit, how to balance detail with emotion: it’s easy to bog down in the early stages of a memoir project, but that doesn’t need to stop you.
