Memoir Writing Workshop

Finding Our Way into Memoir

Presented by Sarah Marcham and Jacqueline Franke

“Anyone who survived childhood has enough material to write for the rest of his or her life.” – Flannery O’Connor

Join us on Saturday, January 5th as two local teacher-writers, students of both the Seven Valleys Writing Project’s “Summer Institute” and Marge Piercy’s Memoir Lab, share a series of writing activities designed to tap into your life experience and start you on that memoir you’ve always been meaning to write.  We will explore the power of writing seductive openings that invite readers in and also create focus and direction for the writer.

There is no cost associated with this workshop.  Coffee and light breakfast starts at 8:30.  Held January 5 from 9-12 in the Beard Building (9 Main Street, Cortland, NY).  Pre-register at BT BOCES MyLearningPlan.
