Your story matters.
If you have thought about writing a memoir but have no idea where to begin, this is the class for you. In a supportive environment, we invite you into the storytelling mindset with guided prompts while also introducing the fundamentals of memoir writing—characterization, voice, setting, emotional resonance—using mentor texts as inspiration. Each week we come together to discover the stories we were meant to tell and the motivation needed to start and continue our own writing practice.
Meet Your Instructor: Marissa Elliott
“Writing is connection. Teaching is about creating room. Carving out space. Softening the landing for all the rough travels life hands us. I want my students to harness the pieces of themselves they have shut down, hidden, walled off because they thought the world wasn’t interested. The world needs voices. It needs loud passionate quiet angry patient voices. I’m honored to walk alongside writers as they make a difference, one word at a time.”
