This 5 week workshop will be offered remotely 9/28, 10/5, 10/12, 10/19, and 10/26 from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Mining your life for stories worth telling without writing a tell-all tome or tiptoeing into beating-a-dead horse territory is tough. David Tromblay will share the lessons he learned while writing his memoir "As You Were" (Dzanc Books 2021). Life is cyclic and often plays jump rope with Gustav Freytag's storytelling arc. In the workshop, we will collectively look at ways to recognize the cause, effect, and the aftermath of life's peccadilloes then boil it all down to use as a template for your novel-length memoir or flash essay(s). Most importantly, we will examine your story for the utmost compelling point of view to capture your intended audience. Over the 5 weeks, plan to produce 20 pages of writing. Suggested accompanying reading: Mary Karr's "The Art of The Memoir."
Instructor: David Tromblay
