Write Your Memoirs or Family History: January 6, 13, 20, & 27

Free Memoir Writing Workshop with Debra Robbins

Are you beset by images of your past, childhood friends, old neighborhoods, long-forgotten incidents?  When the past haunts the present it is nudging us to do something, to capture moments in time that need rescuing, that need to be put down in words.  Perhaps it is time to write your memoir?

If that seems too great a task to attempt alone, then come join our Memoir Writing Workshop!  This four-part series is designed to teach both those who are new to the art of writing and those who wish to gain further experience. Working with a congenial group of fellow writers, and receiving useful feedback from peers and the instructor, participants will learn how to take even the most ordinary life and transform it into a compelling narrative that is cohesive, polished and engrossing; one worthy of publishing or saving for the family archives.

The workshop meets four afternoons: January 6, 13, 20, and 27, from 1:00 – 2:30 p.m., at the Durham Public Library.  Debra Robbins, professional writer and professor, will lead the workshops.  Participants are encouraged to attend all four sessions.
