Memoir Writing Workshop planned for Spring 2014
For several years when I lived on Beaver Island I offered workshops in writing and memoir-writing. The most popular was called The Ten-Foot Life, where I gave each participant a ten-foot piece of paper and their own table upon which he or she traced, visually and verbally, a variety of subjects across various life periods. It was amazing how this process brought up long-forgotten memories and helped focus the work on something other than “I was born….and then….and then.”

Date:          A weekend in March or April to be scheduled
Schedule:  Friday 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Saturday 9:00-Noon, 1:00-4:00
Sunday  10:00-2:00 p.m.
Place:        My studio or another good place in Bay City, Michigan
Fee:           $200 for the weekend, which includes Friday night dinner.
Limit:         Five participants, allowing for plenty of individual attention

So many of you have asked me to repeat this workshop that I’ve decided to give it a go. If you live at a distance, Bay City has excellent accommodations, a wonderful river walk and plenty of restaurants. CONTACT ME (see above link) for more information.
