We write memoir and other forms of creative nonfiction to explore meaning in our human experiences and observations. To do this and gain insight, we must not only relive our experiences as we write them, but shape these experiences for the page. What to include? What to leave out? Where to start and where to end? Join colleagues for an insightful nonfiction workshop and further your latest project!
