April 30- Saturday – Poetry Memoir - 10:30 - 3:15
Instructor: JoAnn Dropp
MFA in Creative Writing from Spaulding University
Have you always wanted to write your memoir as a gift to your loved ones or as a way to tell your story, but felt overwhelmed at the thought of writing an entire book on your own? Through a series of guided writing prompts, I will show you how to write your memoir one poem at a time. You’ll have the freedom to write your memoir chronologically, by theme, or start from present day and work backwards – it’s all up to you!
Participants will need a 3-ring binder, loose leaf paper and pens.
