In this workshop we use our days-gone-by photographs as writing prompts. We look closely at the details. Imaginative writing exercises lead us into meaty stories waiting to be told. Also we learn how to compress these stories into short ‘flash’ essays that crackle with life. Includes writing exercises, reading aloud and discussion. For all adult writers.
Snapshot Memoir Writing
Please bring five (5) of old, printed family photographs (black and white or color) that stand out to you for particular reasons.
- Photos should include you or close family members
- Backgrounds may show a variety of details, unique architecture or natural environments
- Photos may contain certain "moods" that intrigue you
- Photos should have a strong personal significance to you and be at least 10 years old.
Please bring your favorite pen and notebook. We tend to be more grounded and creative when we write using old-fashioned materials like pen and paper.
