I’ll be leading a 10-day flash memoir workshop from April 10th – 20th.
I was inspired by Damhnait Monaghan’s unforgettable CNF piece “How to Say Goodbye to Your Mother” at hippocampus magazine. I’m honoured that “How to Say Goodbye to Your Mother” originated in my memoir workshop last Autumn. This story reminds one about just how much can be accomplished with CNF in the flash fiction form!
Another brilliant example of CNF flash is Hannah Storm’s “Winner and Losers” from Atticus Review. I’m honoured to have created a warm, creative space for these pieces (and many other wonderful CNF stories) to have been born in.
In my April 10th – 20th workshop, I’ll be creating 9 unique exercises and assigning them each day of the workshop. Participants will create and post their memoir stories for others (including me) to read and comment on. Workshop member’s feedback on each others stories are highly encouraged, but not mandatory. My workshops were designed for busy writers with families and day jobs, so my deadlines are casual.The cost for the workshop is $120 USD/£92 GBP or the equivalent in your currency. Founding members (students from 2017 -2018) are being offered this course for a 10% reduced fee (contact me if you are a founding member with any questions about this). This upcoming workshop will take place in a private Facebook group. The word-count limit is 500 words.
