Fall/Winter 2019 Workshop Series
Write Your Own “Snapshot” Memoir with Heather Douglas
Do you have a memory floating around in your mind? Harness that moment by writing your own “Snapshot Memoir.” We will use a plethora of writing prompts and exercises to mine for a powerful snapshot and then write a 1-2 page memoir using Donald Murray’s “The Stranger in the Photo is Me” as a mentor text. If possible, bring a photo of yourself from more than 5 years ago.
Heather Douglas is a high school writing teacher, freelance writer and illustrator. She has self-published two hand-illustrated coloring books, a book of poetry and various zines. She was the recipient of Astoria Visual Arts W-i-R Writer Residency and has been published in various publications.
BRING: a printed photo of yourself from more than 5 years ago (please bring your photo PRINTED ON PAPER so it can be shared with the class, sorry the Sou’wester cannot print your photo for you). Bring something to write with, and paper to write on. Please bring a sack lunch and/or snack. Hot tea and coffee provided.
This workshop is for all ages. 10 students max.
