We all have a story to tell. In this 6-week writing workshop, we will write those stories to create essays or vignettes that may grow into a memoir. There will be weekly writing exercises to help tease out and organize material for a potential story. In a supportive and noncompetitive environment, we will share our work for feedback with the goal of producing a completed piece at the end of the 6 weeks. Must be 18 years or older.
