Ladies Out Loud - Memoir Writing with Karen Lee

Do you have a personal story to tell? Things from your past that you’ve tucked into the back of your memory? More and more, people are realizing that getting those stories down on paper is therapeutic and valuable – the popularity of memoir is exploding. People want real life stories.

This introductory workshop will focus on three-parts – the writing skills required, the journey of change you want to write about, and the courage and persistence needed to tackle difficult personal subjects. Self-care will be discussed.

If you are interested in engaging in the often therapeutic task of memoir writing, start a retrospective journal now – jot down those memories, however small and fleeting, in a notebook, compile pictures of the past, or assemble meaningful objects. Then bring these to the workshop.

Three recommended readings are: “The Memoir Project” by Marion Roach Smith, “Why We Write about Ourselves” Ed. Meredith Maran, and The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls.

Karen Lee has a newly published memoir, The Full Catastrophe. You can find out more information on her website.
