This is basically an exercise group where we can hone our skills by taking part in weekly writing prompt activities. The prompts will mostly be focused on the memoirist and will be taken from such works as The Art of Memoir by Mary Karr and Old Friend From Far Away by Natalie Goldberg. There will also be exercises that originated from online courses. Participants will be encouraged to give feedback on essays that are submitted. We can also open discussion on questions and struggles along the way as we work toward finishing our own book length memoirs.
The goal is to limber up our memoir writing skills, gain insight and reflection on our own process toward completing a novel length memoir in the future.
Responses to weekly writing prompts (usually less than 500 words) or individual pieces that writers would like feedback on. Nothing over 3000 words should be submitted for feedback.
Active participation, at least two submissions or critiques per month.
Members who are not active for 4 months will be removed.
