This workshop will give participants some background on the 6-word memoir form with a short presentation and some examples, before transitioning to building our own memoirs. It will focus on the impact of our communities on our life experience and growth, but all topics for memoir writing are encouraged. There will be a group discussion on the topic, brainstorming, and 1:1 conversations as each student is comfortable. We hope to leave this workshop with some succinct but thoughtful reflections!
Masks are required for participation in this workshop.
