August 12 and August 19 (on Zoom from 7PM to 8PM Eastern Daylight Time)

Celebrate the summer by creating personal narratives and micro memoirs, writing family stories, and reaching out to the future with creative nonfiction.

If you have a story to tell, this two-week workshop will bring it into focus!  With expert guidance and feedback from a Write the World teacher (meet our team here), participants will start by writing a six-word memoir to introduce themselves, reflect on their personal storytelling goals, and share their ideas with other participants in a supportive small group setting.

  • Writing your own micro-memoirs (and optionally sharing them within the group for peer feedback)
  • Optional guided writing exercises between the Zoom sessions to practice and polish your work

These small group workshops (maximum of 12 participants) encourage story sharing and exploring new techniques with writing guidance from expert Write the World teachers.
