Join us for this one day workshop as we explore the world of memoir. In this casual, interactive workshop we will help one another develop our stories. Always wanted to write about that white water rafting trip you took down the Colorado? Or the summer you spent in Paris? Through supportive group discussion and writing exercises we will help you get your writing project off the ground.

The focus of this workshop is the revision and re‐visioning of existing poems. We will discuss how to increase the intensity of your language and images by poetic craft elements. We will also allow the poem to journey into uncharted terrain via surprising, and radical, revision suggestions. A willingness to revision and re‐vision your poem and an openness to suggestions are the criteria for this workshop. There will also be in‐class revision exercises. Bring a poem (no more than one page), pen/paper, and an open mind to the first class.

This class will explore what it takes to go from initial thought to the finished page. Each student will be shown how to recognize the poetry of their own life and how to translate that into a finished piece. Tim Anderson has created a variety of chapbooks*, the first of which was done on a typewriter (it was the 1980s!). *A chapbook is a small paperback booklet, typically containing poems or fiction.
