Write Your Memoir

All Levels | Is it time to tell your story, but you’re not sure how to begin? Are you deep in a draft but hitting a wall? Feeling unsure about structure? This class combines nuts-and-bolts instruction about the elements of great memoir with weekly writing prompts, troubleshooting, sharing, and discussion. Topics will include: crafting a voice, problems with dialogue, balancing exposition and scenic action, fact-checking and ethics, and much more.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.

Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
