Memoir Writing Workshops Starting Today!

Memoir Writing Workshop
@ Vineland Public Library
What’s your story?
Ordinary people have the most extraordinary lives. We all have a story to tell, and now is the time to tell it. The Vineland Library Summer Memoir Class will help you take those memories, reflections, and realizations and bring them to life. Get ready to dig deep, as we will be planting those seeds of personal experience and watching them grow and develop into engaging pieces. Over the course of three Fridays in July, we will be working on the creation of these stories, as well as using techniques to hone rich description and dialogue. All are welcome, whether you have never written before, or have been writing your entire life. We will start fresh and build throughout the class, so no level of expertise is necessary – we are simply looking for people who have a story burning inside and want to stoke the fire. If that’s you, join us this July!
Fridays July 8th, 15th, and 22nd
11:00 a.m.—1:00p.m. in the Community Event Room
*Students must attend all 3 classes. *
This free event is sponsored by the Friends of the Vineland Public Library.
Class size is limited and registration is required.
Please call 856-794-4244 ext: 4243 to register.
