We’re kicking off the 2023 Summer Writing Retreat this evening with “True Stories Told Well: Memory, Form, and Voice in Memoir and Personal Essay” with Rachel Starnes.
All memoirists and essayists have to grapple with the three pillars this class will cover. From working with memories to shaping them into a structured narrative to finding your voice, if you’re writing from personal experience it is essential to have an understanding of how these three aspects work together to create your story on the page.
That’s why we’re excited to offer this class with Rachel Starnes. Over the course of four weeks, each class session will dig into these three fundamental elements that will help any nonfiction writer tell their story. Whether you’ve been considering an idea for a book-length memoir or a shorter personal essay, or you’re well on your way to having a first draft, or you’ve finished drafting and are looking to refine the project, you don’t want to miss this chance.
But the perks don’t stop at this stellar class! Registration for the Summer Writing Retreat includes access to a number of additional special events, including our two Saturday Craft Seminars in July, lunchtime presentations, and dedicated meet-up and writing times. There is truly so much the Summer Writing Retreat has to offer – join us for the next four weeks and you’ll see it all for yourself.
All the best,
