A virtual creative writing workshop for all levels that will give you eight tools to help you to write memoirs or poems that deal with loss, grief, tragedy, substance abuse, shame, regret—all the things we sometimes find it hard to write genuinely and in a way that will draw readers in. For this two-hour workshop you’ll generate several small (under 100 words) pieces—either prose or poetry—using one or more of the writing strategies we’ll discuss.  You may choose to share parts of your writing with the class, but it’s not a requirement.  At the end of the class you’ll also take with you a list of the strategies as well as published examples so that you can continue your writing journey on your own.
