Consider a moment that resulted in sudden insight: on a journey, or at the passing of a loved one; perhaps an ordinary day when you appreciated a particular moment. That moment will be the entryway into your own memoir. We will read and discuss examples in poetry and prose, then write. Old journals are an excellent source to cull your genius.


You’ve probably already written the opening line.


Please be prompt! We begin at 7 p.m. 

Bring a journal, laptop, phone, quill pen—whatever you like to write with.
