Memory is not an instrument for exploring the past but its theatre.- Walter Benjamin
Summon incidents and characters from your past to the stage of your memory through writing prompts designed to create a personal literature. Let your unique life experiences help to create poems, short stories, song lyrics, flash fiction, personal essays, riddles or even the beginning of a book-length memoir. Whether you intend to share your written remembrances with family and friends or a broader audience, you will find this a collegial and supportive workshop in which weekly exercises will help you to transform the rich material of your life into unique works of art. The instructor, a published poet who teaches poetry writing and leads workshops on the creative process, will offer suggestions for getting your work published, either privately or in journals.
