Thursday, October 4, 2018 - 6:30pm

Four Thursdays: Oct. 4 - 25 • 6:30 - 8:30 pm • $220

Finding a structure can be one of the biggest challenges of writing a memoir. How do you choose what to put in your story and what to leave out. In this workshop you will have the opportunity to create a series of visual “memory maps” specifically for your story. We will use these personal maps as a tool for writing narratives that are both emotional and compelling. Experienced and beginning writers welcome. Materials provided.

Melissa Cistaro is the author of the award-winning memoir Pieces of My Mother. Her stories, essays and interviews have appeared in numerous literary journals and national publications. She also works as an event coordinator at Book Passage and has taught memoir writing classes in the Bay Area and beyond.
