So not only did you teach me about writing memoir, you also taught me about reading and thinking about how others write memoir. Thank you so much! Rebecca

Saturday workshop with Maureen sent us home filled with motivation and inspiration

Thanks to Maureen Ryan Griffin for a wonderful workshop Saturday at Writers Circle. Everyone of us came away with tons of ideas for writing and motivation to stop procrastinating. Delicious Memories was the title of the course and I was amazed to see how many poems and essays are written about food. We wrote about food. I wrote an Ode to Real Butter. We wrote a persona poem. This was fun.
We learned new ways to create a poem or essay. Maureen has such a gift for inspiring others.
Her book, Spinning Words into Gold, has been one I revisit often and she will soon have a new book on writing.

I was sorry that the Georgia Poetry Society's meeting at Young Harris College was also on Saturday and I could not attend.
I want to thank Michelle Keller for making delicious bread and muffins for us today. Very good food for a class on food.

Next year, Maureen will teach again at Writers Circle and the date is June 10, 2012. Put that date on your calendar now. YOu will not want to miss it.
