WhaMemWriMo Series: Introduction to Writing Your Memoir: Making the Narrative Journey


This introductory class will provide an overview of the memoir to help guide writers and shape their understanding. What is the memoir--and what is it not? Who is the narrator? How does that voice function? Memoir's inherent structure is a journey. Find out how to structure your memories to make that journey. Come prepared to take lots of notes, meet other writers, and be inspired. Novelist Laura Kalpakian has taught Memory into Memoir for over 15 years at UW, WWU, at conferences, and to private groups.
