Memories aren't enough to make a memoir. To make a great story, we have to connect our memories to culture, to history, to zeitgeist—and then be as clear and specific about our unique perspectives as possible. In this generative workshop, we'll open a number of creative doorways (and windows and portholes and tunnels) into meaning and discuss how and why they work. Participants will leave with at least twelve new prompts for mining memory and life stories for deeper meaning.
