Memoir Intensive (IN-PERSON)

Spend three days diving into memoir writing. No experience required. The intensive will include lecture, discussion, writing prompts, brainstorming activities designed to get to the heart of your work as a writer, and workshops of participants’ writing. Lecture/discussion topics will include: voice and vision, inviting the reader into the work, narrative arc, thematic drive, collage techniques, scene-building, the publication process, and how to make the most of your writing time. There will be an hour-long lunch break each session.

This class may be moved online for some or all sessions depending on the COVID-19 public health guidelines and Hugo House’s current in-person program policy. We are monitoring the situation daily. Hugo House prioritizes the health of our students and staff.
