The Joy Of Writing Memoir & A Daily Diary


A 6-week online course.

We will study the craft of memoir and personal writing, developing one of the most essential skills: showing your story unfolding in time. We will experiment with a daily dairy or field notes, as per the teachings of Lynda Barry, cultivating what we see, hear, did or sense directly in front of us – specifically in nature. The daily diary will be a rich 42 day memoir of sorts. We will refer to it and other writers work for writing prompts. Each participant will have ample opportunity to read work aloud for nurturing and constructive feedback.
