“When writing the story of your life, don’t let anyone else hold the pen.”
~Anonymous~

Writers of all abilities are invited to join this workshop led by Kimberly Crum – writer and educator who specializes in creative nonfiction, which uses fictional techniques to tell true stories.  Kim has taught memoir and personal  essay writing since 2012.

Each participant will receive a weekly writing prompt and short reading to complete at home.  The instructor will include craft instruction in each meeting. During workshop time, participants will read their writing prompt responses aloud. And each time we meet one person will submit a short manuscript for peer commentary and instructor critique.  Whether you want to write for publication, posterity, or self-expression, you are welcome in this group. 

Minimum participants: 4 – Maximum participants: 6

Please enroll by February 14 in order to receive the writing prompt and reading in time to prepare for February 21!

Please note: Legacy writing is a form of memoir, though not intended for publication or needing revision. But all writing benefits from some revision! It is important to engage your audience in a story, even when they are your descendants! Email Kim with any questions: kgcrumwrites4life@gmail.com
