Refining Your Memoir--Showing and Telling

1:00pm - 4:30pm

Add to Calendar 2021-03-20 13:00:00 2021-03-20 16:30:00 America/New_York Refining Your Memoir--Showing and Telling This event will be held virtually on Zoom. VIRTUAL

This event will be held virtually on Zoom.

In this two-day, hands-on workshop, we will discuss the form of memoir and how the adage "show, don't tell" doesn't always hold true. Most memoir is actually a blend of scene, summary (narrative), and musing (reflection on the meaning of key events). Over the course of two days, we'll look at examples of compelling memoir from writers including Edwidge Danticat, Tara Westover, Howard Axelrod, and Frank McCourt.

Meeting on March 6 and 20, we will complete several in-class exercises and discuss how to incorporate compelling scenes and reflection into your stories. You'll leave with an expanded toolbox and a greater understanding of the key ingredients of powerful memoirs.

A meeting link will be emailed to registered participants approximately one hour prior to the start of the program. Staff will be available for help with connecting to Zoom and technical issues beginning 15 minutes prior to the program. You will need a device with audio and/or video and an internet connection to join. If you have questions about this program, please contact Laurie Kincer at the South Euclid-Lyndhurst Branch at 216-382-4880.
