About the Event

Incorporating WWf(a)C circle practices, this interactive workshop will explore how to begin writing memoir--the importance of including only those elements that work for the story. Participants will practice writing from firsthand experience and learn how the small details of an event can be most effectively written and understood. Instructed by guest artist Tina Neyer and co-facilitated by Lisa Rocklin. Join us for this interactive workshop and learn why your story matters.

Guest Artist Tina Neyer helps fledgling writers transform their writing into publishable work. She works with writers in various stages of the creation of memoir and fiction as a book coach.

Please Note: Two dates (April 9 and April 10) are offered to accommodate more writers. Content is the same for each session. By registering here, you are enrolling in the APRIL 9 offering. This class will be held via Zoom online conferencing. Your facilitator will provide specific details regarding this online community prior to the start of class.
