An event every week that begins at 10:30am on Tuesday, repeating until Tuesday, July 2, 2019
Do we write the stories of our lives to leave a record for friends and family? Do we write memoir or fiction based on our experiences so that we can understand our lives better? Or do we write memoir to preserve history and the sometimes complex and sometimes quiet events that we have lived through?
Join fiction writer Nancy Fishman for two classes on memoir and fiction writing. We will talk about what makes a compelling memoir and why we write memoir. We will write from prompts brought in by Nancy, as well as prompts suggested by class participants. We will write in class together and then share our writing if we feel so inclined.
This class is offered free to residents of Scandia Village. As space permits, non-residents will be admitted on a goodwill donation basis. Classes are held Tuesday, June 25, and Tuesday, July 2, 10:30 am – noon. To inquire as to availability, please email email@example.com or call 920-868-1457.
