There are people to protect, faulty memories of events, and the pitfalls of self-censorship. In this workshop, we will employ techniques of poetry and fiction to create works of Memoir and Autobiographical Fiction. Through original writing exercises, we will learn literary techniques including character, dialogue, setting and story arc. In our writing, we will draw upon both the truths and lies of our experience because our lives are too rich not to write about and our imaginations too strong to ignore. Every writer will have the opportunity to workshop one original piece. All levels of writers are welcome. Tuition for the course is $350, with a pre-registration discounted rate of $300 if you register before April 1st.
This workshop is open to people of color and allies.
When: Wednesdays: April 26, May 3, May 10, May 17 and May 24: 7-9 PM
Where: Flatbush, Brooklyn, NY
