Join award-winning author Anndee Hochman at the Jersey
Shore for a supportive weekend writing workshop.
Turning Memory into Memoir
Transform significant life experiences and important
moments into well-crafted literary prose. We'll open our senses,
dig into memory and use the tools of imagery, detail, tone,
pacing and structure to write vivid, meaningful memoirs.
Exquisite excerpts by a range of writers will give us
inspiration and a close look at the "clockworks"—that is, what
makes a strong memoir tick. In exploring the "heart" of memoir,
we'll also touch on questions of authenticity, memory,
truth-telling and the ethics of writing about living people. *Limited to just 10 participants.*
Workshop led by Anndee Hochman
Read Anndee's piece,
"Face to Face: Loss and Homecoming at the 25th Reunion,"
originally published in the The Philadelphia Inquirer.
"Anndee’s workshop exceeded my expectations. She taught us
strategies for writing about our real life experiences and
helped me unlock forgotten memories. I was able to go beyond
writing what I already knew."
~ Sarah, 2012 Turning Memory into Memoir Participant
