Memoir Writing Workshop

Who are you? Who were you? Do you want to leave a record of your life story for friends and relatives or the public at large? In this workshop, which is for beginning writers as well as experienced writers, we’ll discuss the challenges of writing about ourselves, read some good examples of memoir, and write short essays about what has mattered most in our lives—the funny things, the difficult moments, the neighborhoods, the people, etc. Each week new prompts will be offered to stimulate your memory and creativity.

Led by presenter Paul Lamar, who enjoys teaching reading and writing workshops through the Albany Public Library system.

This workshop will be conducted over Zoom. Please be sure to include your email address when registering, and a Zoom link will be sent to you the day before each session.
