Creating your memoir - a writing workshop
Cost: $34.00
Date: Saturday, June 18, 1 to 4 pm
Register By: June 17

How many of us have said, "I really need to write down what happened”?  Family stories and life experience have great meaning but not just for us.  Family members and even strangers can discover something valuable to connect to their own life journey in our memoir.  And as we write, we re-live the story in a fuller way, examining it closely to find deeper meaning. If you can write a sentence, you can write your memoir.

This class includes basic instruction and tips to get you started.  And for fun, be prepared for some in-class writing prompts to stir up those stories you’ve been holding onto.  Let’s capture those memories now. 

Terri received her BA in English with a Creative Writing Emphasis in 2006 and continues to work on the writing craft by attending courses, workshops, and conferences and participating in critique groups.  She has won several awards, including the Idaho Magazine 2016 Fiction Contest, and is published in Live and Talking River Review.  Terri can be found many days writing short stories or revising a novel at local coffee shops and libraries.  She and her husband enjoy the visits of their three children and three grandchildren, whom she also encourages to write their stories.

This workshop is for adults and has a minimum of 4 students and a maximum of 15. 

No previous writing experience is required.

The instructor will provide handouts and journals.  Participants may bring a computer or a special journal.

If it is a nice day, the class will move outdoors to an adjoining patio.

BARN & SHOP HOURS:  Thursday through Sunday 10 am to 6 pm. 
CLOSED: New Year's Day, Easter, July 4th, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
