Where I’m From: An Introduction to Memoir

with Cathy Capuano, facilitator

In this workshop, students will explore connections between where they’re from and who they are. In a supportive environment, students will use a work of George Ella Lyon’s Where I’m From as an anchor text to generate their own material. Students will be led in an exercise of remembering, reflecting, and recording. The class will include brainstorming, writing, and optional sharing.

This class serves as an introduction to a six-week class on memoir writing led by Nancy McMillan, which begins the following week, Friday, October 7, at the same time.

The fee for class is $35. Class size is limited to 8 students.
