Memoir Writing Workshop
Every session focuses on an important memoir writing topic for the first half-hour with helpful information on subjects like enlivening the writing (using sensory detail, descriptive detail, writing good dialog).
You’ll learn all of this and more:
• to write engaging scenes
• how to create authentic, believable characters
• how to shape a good story from out of a larger time period or event
Story review is part of every class session, with sign-ups for readings at the first lass meeting. Over the 8 weeks you’ll have a chance to get feedback on 4 or 5 writings of up to 2000 words. Optional at-home writing exercises and writing topics are given on request.

Suzanne is my mentor, teacher, coach, and editor. I came to her memoir class eight years ago with a story and subsequently published it in Imitation Fruit Literary Journal. Two other stories Suzanne helped me with were published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Cat Really Did That? With her help, I’m now completing a book of cat rescue stories. And to think it started with one class! — Terilynn Mitchell, Writer & Veterinary Technician
