Recalling and (Re)Discovering Story Workshop with Sheree L. Greer
Recalling all the details of a particular experience can be challenging, but that doesn't mean the story of that experience is impossible to write. In this interactive, generative workshop, writers will explore how memory both inspires and informs memoir writing. Through discussion, writing prompts, and short exercises, writers will (re)discover the intersections of creative inquiry and lived experience to craft their own resonant, reflective stories that are begging to be told.
