We'll start this workshop by exploring memoir and personal narrative forms.
How are they similar? How do they differ?
Next, you'll select a particular story from your life that you want to tell.
You'll examine your motivations for telling this story,
as well as the relationship between the self in the story
and the self telling the story.
You'll try out some playful exercises to help you
begin to focus your story and craft your narrative voice.

Before the workshop, you'll be asked to read a short piece of memoir
and a short piece of personal narrative for us to discuss together.
