Beginning Memoir WritingYou have a story to tell. One memory leads to another. You will draw pictures of the times in which you lived and loved, when you put your words to paper. You will remember yourself, your family and those you loved. The challenges and accomplishments and the hard times and the good that helped make you who you are, are part of the story. Your memoir is a gift only you can give. You will form a bond with classmates as you read their work. Class will share weekly work for appreciation and constructive discussion, in class exercises and prompts when necessary, individual help and suggestions for construction and clarity.
Creative WritingCome meet new friends, write and read work with other class participants for inspiration, and enjoy lively but gentle discussions. Enhance your work using description, dialogue, humor, and personal insight to tell stories, whether about your life or fiction. In class exercises are fun and prompt quick flying, spontaneous writing. Remember punctuation and tense for clarity. Meet other writers with similar backgrounds wishing to share common interests and writing experiences. Eden Prairie Community Education www.edenpr.org/epcommunityed
