Memoir Writing: Getting to the Heartwood

About this event


		THIN AIR 2021 Writing Craft : Darrel J. McLeod image

In this workshop, inspired by Betsy Warland's teachings (from both her course on memoir writing and her book Breathing the Page on the act of writing), Darrel will walk through the process of "laying track" or getting into flow when doing the first draft of a story or chapter so that the text comes from a deep place from the very start. Darrel will describe and utilize simple exercises to facilitate this and then describe a process of gently and sensitively sculpting one's own text to refine voice, and to be left with elements of their life story in a way that makes the telling of it compelling.

Everyone has a story to share—that is one of the fundamental truths that powers our team. Writers invest in refining their stories, to maximize their impact on readers. Our Writing Craft workshops give all interested writers, whatever their experience, a chance to soak up the expertise of some of the amazing writers featured at THIN AIR 2021. Each workshop is 90 minutes long, and thanks to our partnership with the Winnipeg Public Library and support from Taylor McCaffrey, we are thrilled to offer them without charge!
