Poetry Memoir Class
Please note, this event has expired.
Create or enhance a memoir with a collection of poems. By reflecting on significant moments, people, and places—one poem at a time—we can write a unique kind of autobiography. And because we may write in a non-chronological way, a poetry memoir is a fun and definitely doable project.
Each meeting offers inspiration and practical exercises to send you on your way with two or three poems. Drop in for a day or take the whole course. Write a few poems or write a book!
Optional time for caring critique until 2:15.
