Making Meaning in Memoir, Part II [Kimberly Dark]

The Date of this class has been updated from the print catalog.

All Levels | This generative workshop builds on the type of prompts offered in the “More than Memories” session, but there is no prerequisite for participation. Bring whatever you’re working on. This class explores storytelling in casual conversations and as a tool to generate written connections with community, culture, and history. Stories and accounts are a big part of how humans make meaning of life. We’ll expand on short passages and develop cultural connections so that stories become relatable — which is very different than trying to make a story “universal.” Participants will leave with expanded thinking about their texts and an ability to “hear” cultural connections in everyday life and translate them onto the page.
