The Art of Crafting the Memoir: Session II with Myles Ludwig
Session II – March 2, 9, 16, 23, 30; April 6
Each class 2 to 4 p.m.
This course is designed for those who have been working on their material.
The stories of our lives define us, and writing a memoir is a way of collecting your most meaningful stories, and telling how you’ve come to achieve the wisdom you have. Crafting a memoir is not the daunting task of writing an autobiography, but of taking a look at a slice of your personal history. So few of us know how our parents thought and felt. In a memoir, you can view yourself as a character in the events of your own life, your thoughts and feelings, your strengths and vulnerabilities, and see them with compassion and wisdom.
In this series of informal yet guided workshops, you’ll learn how to craft your memoir with award-winning author, university educator and professional editor, Myles Ludwig. He will show you how to overcome the common fears of writing to help you craft your memoir in your own style. This is a workshop based on encouragement, not criticism.
Participation is limited to assure individual attention.
