The Center for Literature and Theatre @MDC presents Memoir 101 with MJ Fievre

February 24 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

| $170

This workshop will help writers develop specific skills to tell their personal stories with a crafted sensibility. Participants will learn to focus their narrative voice, find a story’s arc, and use scene, characterization, and dialogue to organize the raw material of their lives. Work written during the workshop will be discussed in a non-judgmental environment designed to support each other’s individual skills. We’ll explore the differences between autobiography and memoir and address the idea of self-disclosure. We’ll also discuss the “gray areas” of nonfiction, including the tension between emotional and factual truth, and ideas about truth telling for memoirists. All levels welcome.
