Writing chapters from one’s life story can produce gifts for family, and an important record of community life. Sometimes we keep silent about our deepest secret chapters in life, or keep to ourselves stories of precious buoyancy and humor.

In this workshop, we will read short passages from a variety of voices reflecting on lessons learned from life. We will use these passages as prompts for our own writing, in order to seek illumination by writing from memory for productive citizenship.

This 3-hour session is a freestanding exploration of practices developed more fully in the weekend workshop Memoir: 100 Tricks, held November 9-10.

This workshop is part of our 2013-2014 Workshop Series

About the Instructor

Kim Stafford is the founding director of the Northwest Writing Institute at Lewis & Clark
College, and the author of a dozen books of poetry and prose, including 100 Tricks Every Boy Can Do: How My Brother Disappeared (a memoir), and The Muses Among Us: Eloquent Listening and Other Pleasures of the Writer’s Craft (a book about writing and teaching). He approaches writing as a chance to compose stories we have carried into poems, essays, radio commentaries, blessings, rants, parables, and other forms of “tikkun olam,” the healing of the world.
