The One-Sentence Memoir

All Levels | Dive into the murky waters of your life and emerge holding one glistening sentence. In this workshop, we’ll work on getting to the nut of the story of your life — or one of the stories of your life — in order to capture its complexities, conundrums, and paradoxes in a single sentence. Done well, this kind of work is invaluable for book proposals, personal essays, and memoirs.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through the end of 2020.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
