Bearing Witness: How to Write Your Memoir
A weekend workshop for women and men.
When you write your life stories, you make connections and discover themes that spark new insights about who you are and all you’ve been through. You also present your readers with a gift of presence and perspective. In this workshop you will learn to shape your experiences and reflections into compelling prose. In essence, you will pour your stories into a container that will hold them and maximize their power both for you and your readers. You’ll learn the four elements that must be present in every satisfying narrative — assault, abyss, awareness, and action — and explore the importance of each in the unfolding of your story on the page. The work of fine writers — some famous, some not — will inform and inspire you as your own best writing is evoked in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.
The Tree of Health Center massage therapist will be available all day for neck, shoulder and reflexology to ease the tension out as your story unfolds — $1 a minute.
Please contact The Tree of Health Center at info@ttohc or (973) 500-8813 for more information.
NOTE: Workshop participants who would like support after the workshop can take part in a six-person monthly writers’ circle that will meet at The Tree of Health Center from February through June. Limit: six people.
$250 per person for five-month series
** $225 when you sign up for workshop and writers’ circle at the same time. **
