Workshop 7: Writing Your Own Memoir: The Light & Dark Years

With Caroline Woodward.

October 15 | 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.Fairmont Chateau Whistler | $32

Whether you want to leave an account of your life in words and photographs for your descendants or begin the first in an ambitious trilogy of literary memoirs or a long poem, script for stage or radio, or children’s books, this workshop may be the spark to ignite your own project. Memoir is a vehicle for reaching the universal from the outpost of the personal so we will explore form, voice, ethical and legal issues, narrative arc and finally, examine what really matters about your own life. Bring lots of paper—or your laptop—and prepare to write like blazes and to enjoy lively discussions too.
