We need to expand our understanding of memoir; it is actually the writing of history from often ignored points of view. From researching a time period, to fearlessly making use of family letters and other papers, to unfettering your imagination to fill in the blanks, this writing intensive will inspire you to make your memoir more interesting and to take your writing more seriously. For all levels.
