What’s Your Story?: A 6-Week Personal Essay/Memoir Writing Workshop

  • The Mothership 401 West Geer Street Durham, NC, 27701 United States (map)

Each life contains millions of stories. In this class come prepared to create personal narratives from your own life stories, from the everyday to the extraordinary. With the help of prompts as well as excerpts and writing advice from well-known non-fiction essayists, we will cover such topics as: battling writing perfectionism, dialogue, brainstorming, organization, editing and more. 

This non-fiction workshop is open to writers of all genres and levels of experience, but will be tailored particularly for writers who are familiar with the workshop format. This class will give each writer the opportunity to create new work, collaborate and experiment in a supportive environment and connect with a local writing community.

Limit: 10 students. Please bring a journal and your favorite writing utensil and be prepared to write in class.
