Writing Your Life: Memoir as History – November 2021

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.

Sallie Bingham is an American author, playwright, poet, teacher, feminist activist, and philanthropist who has taught workshops in memoir at the Carnegie Center, The Taos Writing Center, and other venues over the past ten years. She has published three memoirs, and her next, Little Brother: The Short Life and Strange Death of Jonathan Worth Bingham will be published by Sarabande Books in 2022.
