**This workshop will be live streamed via Zoom.** 

Your life is a story, and if told correctly, a very interesting one. There is an art to taking the sprawling events of your life and reducing them down to a personal essay or memoir. Using Bill Kenower’s unique inside-out approach to writing, we will look at how to tell the fine difference between telling a story about your life, and using your life to tell a story. It doesn’t matter if you want to tell the story of how you’ve climbed Mount Everest, or falling in love for the first time, all stories are worth telling when you find their heart. 

Students taking this class can expect to learn:

  • How to find the narrative arc in a personal story.
  • How to write about painful memories.
  • How to write about people who have mistreated you.
  • How to turn the most challenging moments from your life into a story that can help others.


  • Registration for this class will close on Thursday, November 4th at 12:00 PM.
