Memoir Writing Workshop


Tuesday, April 25 - 4pm - 6pm
Rio Vista Library




Everyone has stories to share and many people have a desire to write about their life. Wanting to write and doing so are two different things. Often we get stuck on the immensity of such a project. This workshop will help to make that desire a reality.


This workshop will help participants to decide what to write about their lives using a method called "palm-of-the-hand" writing, after the "palm-of-the-hand" stories of Japanese writer Yasunari Kawabata. After deciding on story possibilities, the method presented helps focus the writer's energy into completing short individual pieces about their life.


We will go through the whole process - from generating ideas to describing the actual process of writing a "palm-of-the-hand" memoir.


The workshop will be presented by Michael Czarnecki, and will be followed by a poetry reading by Michael.
