Public Scholars Project
Write Your Memoir Five Minutes at a Time
January 10, 2019 at 1:00 PM | Maplewood, NJ | Maplewood Hilton Branch Library
Unlike autobiography, memoir is based on the idea that everyone has a story to tell, a story that matters. Writing memoir asks that one awaken and be guided by empathy towards oneself and others. In this way, memoir prompts a journey of self-discovery that enables writers to gain insights into their past. Through lessons in the craft of memoir, the exploration of editorial revisions, and invaluable writing suggestions, participants learn how to develop a writing practice and continue their writing life beyond the session.
