CLASS FULL! Memoir Writing Workshop with Moira Silva


Memoir Writing Workshop with Moira Silva

Beginning Friday, January 17 from 10:30am-12pm, writer Moira Silva will lead a four week series of Memoir Writing Workshops at the West Tisbury Library.

“[Come] share your story. But not in a rote, for-the-hundreth-time sort of way. Settle down inside yourself and give it to use like you never heard it before, as discovery” says Natalie Goldberg in The True Secret of Writing.

In this supportive writing community, you will begin transforming your experiences into memoirs. Inspiration abounds as we immerse ourselves in exemplary essays, rich discussions and intriguing prompts. By week four, your focus will be honed, and you’ll be sparkling with a renewed passion for writing. All ages and experience levels are welcome. Free and open to the public.

Advance sign up is required! Contact the library to reserve your space. Please commit to all four sessions. Classes meet Fridays at 10:30am: 1/17, 1/24, 1/31, and 2/7.
