Memoir Workshop

You’ve started your memoir – now what? Continue developing your craft and gain valuable feedback in this workshop-style format. You’ll be applying the lessons that you’ve learn in this course to your manuscript.
Through craft discussion and critique, we’ll  explore the nuances of scene building, dialogue, and story structure to inform the progression of your work. This hands-on workshop features 2 full-length critique sessions for each student. Each class meeting will include a craft lesson and workshop time.
The goal will be to have 20+ revised pages by the end of this class and a solid outline for your memoir project going forward.
NOTE: Students attending this class must have at least 10 pages of memoir drafted by the first class meeting (April 10). If you do not have a draft ready or have never written in this genre before we recommend you take the Elements of Memoir course instead. 
6 Tuesdays, 6-8:30 pm, April 10, 17, 24, May 1, 8, & 15
Wordcrafters Workshop, 438 Charnelton, Eugene
