October 10 – November 14
Writers’ Workshoppe  |  Imprint Books
Port Townsend, Washington
6 sessions | 6 participants max

Bring your work-in-progress to this weekly workshop and receive thoughtful responses and encouragement to write on. We’ll combine discussion of the art and craft of memoir, consider work by masters of the genre, and offer each other helpful ideas that foster excellence in the work and a sense of community among participants. Whether you’re writing a short piece or a full-length manuscript, this workshop will help you discover that sweet spot between writing, research, and revision. We’ll work on building scenes and learn to move back and forth in time and awareness, as your narrator’s understanding grows and changes. Each week we’ll read your work aloud and discuss it, offering constructive responses intended to help you hone and revise your story. Comments are best received in a safe and supportive atmosphere; we’ll talk about the framework we’ll use at our first meeting.
