Join us for a special writing experience in this Lunch with the Arts session featuring Dr. Jessica Hindman.

Memoir and Memory: Your Past-Self Versus Your Present-Self

Memoirists need distance from their past-selves in order to write about their lives with insight and wisdom. But how does one create distance between oneself and oneself? How do we make our complex, living selves into characters on a page? Come to this workshop as one person, leave as at least two!

What to expect:

  • A discussion on the difference between past-self and present-writer-self.
  • Examining brief excerpts from memoirists who have successfully created these two selves on the page.
  • A writing exercise designed to show you how to create distance between your two selves.
  • Sharing your writing with the group for immediate encouragement (optional).

Participants will leave with:

  • A better understanding of memoir as a genre.
  • Tips on how to see yourself as a character on the page.
  • A guided prompt to help you generate memoir writing.
