“I write to discover what I know.” ― Flannery O'Connor How do we get the people we know onto the page? When writing memoir, it’s all too easy to take our characters for granted because we know them. Complexity develops in characters as we discover them, moment by moment. This workshop will provide tools to help memoir writers reach beyond the familiar and craft characters in vivid and memorable detail.

Connie Josefs is a writer, teacher, and writing coach who has worked extensively with writers - particularly older writers - to write and publish their memoirs. She has taught writing at the University of New Mexico, the Taos Writers Conference, and Santa Monica College. She has also been a writer and story analyst for film and television.
