The Magic of Memoir: a mini-workshop and a reading
Sarah Conover will both read from her essay in the newly released Magic of Memoir and facilitate a mini-workshop on memoir for writers just beginning their story, or mid-stream, or at wit's end. We'll look at what memoir is and what memoir isn't. Much of the workshop time will be spent in group discussion and resourcing from one another, celebrating our love of the memoir writing process as well as the very real challenges from start to publication. The Magic of Memoir, Inspiration for the Writing Journey includes essays and interviews from 38 writers who share their hard-won wisdom, stories, and writing tips. Included are best-selling and widely renown memoirists Mary Karr, Elizabeth Gilbert, Dr. Azar Nafisi, Dani Shapiro, Margo Jefferson, Raquel Cepeda, Jessica Valenti, Daisy Hernández, Mark Matousek, and Sue William Silverman.
