This workshop will help writers develop specific skills to tell their personal stories with a crafted sensibility. Participants will learn to focus their narrative voice, find a story’s arc, and use scene, characterization, and dialogue to organize the raw material of their lives. Work written during the workshop will be discussed in a non-judgmental environment designed to support each other’s individual skills. We’ll explore the differences between autobiography and memoir and address the idea of self-disclosure. We’ll also discuss the “gray areas” of nonfiction, including the tension between emotional and factual truth, and ideas about truth telling for memoirists. All levels welcome.

Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
