Making Meaning from Memory Writing Workshop

  • Rockingham Free Public Library 65 Westminster Street Bellows Falls, Vermont USA (map)

Award winning author Elayne Clift will offer her writing workshop “Making Meaning of Memory—Without Falling Down the Rabbit Hole.”

Memories provide insight into our lives and help us to understand who we are (and how we got that way). They can offer meaningful triggers for writers in all genres, not just memoirists. Often, however, writing from memory can lead us down a dark rabbit hole of introspection. Take heart! As George Gershwin knew, “It ain’t necessarily so!”

Clift explains: “This workshop will focus on our interiority with rigor and honesty, but without falling down the dark hole of humorless self-absorption. We will emphasize the funny side of things as we remember and reflect upon the loony world in which we live.”

Registration: Pre-registration is required. Seats are limited
