You have a story worth sharing and I want to help you write it.

That’s why teaching the Mini-Memoir Writing Workshop, set for June and July 2021!

This 6-week writing workshop series (hosted live via Zoom) will guide you through writing several brief personal narratives that you can later pitch to your favorite publication, adapt into a blog post, or use to jumpstart your book project. Throughout the workshop, you will also get feedback on your work from me and other workshop participants.

Here’s what to expect each week:

  • 2-hour meetup
  • 30 minutes of teaching on a topic related to non-fiction and personal narrative writing
  • Prompts to inspire your writing
  • 30 minutes of writing
  • 30 minutes of critique
  • Time for networking and Q&A

The final workshop will also include tips on how to get your work published.

I’ve written monthly columns for two magazines and I am currently the curator and editor of Reckon South’s Reckon Women Voices column.
