The Workshop

Using innovative right-brain/left-brain learning techniques you will trigger, develop and translate your life experiences into story as you learn creative structure.

It will be a time to discover and enhance your unique writing voice, explore theme and subject and its associated meaning as you learn how to focus your memoir. You will also discover how to engage with truth in the writing of creative non-fiction.

The workshop is open to new, emerging and established writers to:

  • create a short memoir
  • develop a full-length memoir
  • work on a current manuscript

You receive personal feedback on your story throughout the workshop.

The workshop is based on Irene’s workbook – The Memoir Writing Workbook – which you receive a copy of at the retreat.
