To deny ones own experience is to put a lie into the lips of ones own life, Oscar Wilde. Yet we struggle to give ourselves permission to write our own lives. Have we the right to say this? Then how should we say it? Who will read it? Who will care? And who might we hurt trying to say it? The act of recovering our memories of a lost or broken self is an act of great courage. This workshop will help the attendee discover ways to overcome the self-doubt that comes in all stages of the writing process: from beginning thoughts to final revision. The workshop will combine lecture, reading, and writing exercises, along with question and answer opportunities about how to re-create the past. The point of the memoir is insight. Presenter Ann Putnam will demonstrate the shaping that takes place when the author decides what to select, what to leave out, and how to re-create the sense of the felt experience that authors need and readers long for.
