Like it or not, when it comes to writing memoir, you are a hero — the one without whom there would be no story. We’ll explore the notion of the hero’s journey as it pertains to our own lives and identify our own types (Tragic? Anti-? Unwilling?). We will think, talk, and write our way toward accepting ourselves as heroes on the page. You’ll leave with tons of ideas and notes for your memoir, be it in-progress or not-yet-begun.
