We think our lives are interesting, but do readers? How do you make your true story resonate with an audience in 1000 words or less? In this workshop, led by memoirist and personal essayist, Nadine Kenney Johnstone, you will learn why it’s crucial for writers to write their truth and make readers care right away. Whether you're working on a full-length memoir or short essays, the techniques you'll learn in this class will help elevate your personal essays or short memoir scenes. This will be a generative class for writers of all levels and will include in-class writing.
