The Pivotal Moment: Memoir Writing (with Cooper Lee Bombardier)

Apr 15 – May 6, 6 – 8pm >>

In this four-week memoir-writing workshop, you’ll take a singular, transformative moment from your life and unpack it using the literary tools of creative nonfiction to discover the deeper meaning and creative possibilities to be found in reflecting upon one’s life events. This workshop is suitable for writers of all levels and experience.
