Putting your life on the lines: Memoir writing

Your life story doesn't have to have been overly dramatic in order to write a memoir. In this class you'll recount those tales you've been telling your family and friends for years. Whether you choose to write about a specific experience or cover a number of years' worth, you'll learn the skills necessary to organize and craft a written legacy for yourself, your family and/or publication. Through in-class and take-home exercises, you'll have a great start on your memoir in hand by the end of the six weeks.

Instructor Katherine Tandy Brown has been a successful freelance writer for 22 years. She leads workshops in travel writing, memoir writing and writing for teens, and is a writing coach residing in Beaufort.
