Memoir Writing Workshop

Starting September 27th, the West Tisbury Library will host a five-week memoir workshop series with Moira Silva on Tuesdays from 10:30am-12pm: 9/27, 10/4, 10/11, 10/18, and 10/25. These sessions will meet in-person on the library porch. Please contact wt_mail@clamsnet.org to sign up. Space is limited. Participants are asked to commit to all five sessions. Free and open to the public! 

A blend of exercises, readings and discussions will connect writers with their writing and themselves. Participants will form a supportive community while sharing in-process work. We will honor whatever is created, be it essays, songs, letters or entire new genres. After five weeks, writers will leave lighter in spirit and richer in purpose. No writing experience required.
