LIVING MEMORY: a memoir intensive with Karen Auvinen




This class takes the raw footage of your own memories and gives you techniques for turning them into vividly rendered scenes in your memoir. Bring a few memories or key scenes from a book in progress and we’ll write around and to them in order to make them come alive. Bring a willingness to play and a notebook and pen or computer for writing practice.

NB: This recorded class is available to rent for two weeks through a private YouTube link. The link will be sent to the email you use to enroll (check your spam).  Please email [email protected] with questions.
