Description

"Each of us is a book waiting to be written." -Thomas M. Cirignano 

In the face of despair, young Rywka Lipszyc turned to writing as a way to process her loss and get some small measure of control over the chaotic world around her. But we don’t need to experience her level of trauma to have a meaningful story to tell. Each of us lives a unique and important life, and preserving our pivotal moments in writing is a gift of love to ourselves and future generations. 

In this workshop, we’ll explore what makes a good story for a memoir project, play with different forms, craft a draft, and have fun. The atmosphere will be supportive (no red pens!) and gently guide participants through a process that will spark creativity and resuscitate the storyteller that lives inside all of us.  

Facilitator, Kim Suhr, is Director of Red Oak Writing and author of Nothing to Lose (Cornerstone Press, 2018) and Maybe I’ll Learn: Snapshots of a Novice Mom (KDP, 2012). She has presented at local, regional, and national writing conferences, and shepherds other writers as they find their voices and tell their own stories. Kim’s work has appeared in various journals and the anthology, Family Stories from the Attic (Hidden Timber Books, 2017) Kim holds an MFA in fiction and presents at local, regional and national writing conferences.
