Write What Makes You Blush with Lee Kofman
Join experienced author and editor Lee Kofman for an insightful course all about writing honest and authentic memoirs.
Writers’ best works usually dwell in the caves of shame. Shame is a reliable barometer to detect those urgent stories we need to tell. But how do we find the right language to write about what makes us blush?
This workshop aims to help memoirists find the courage to write about what matters to them by using group discussions, some theory and writing exercises. It will help you to foster the ability to connect to your urgent themes and critical thinking around the ethics of memoir. It will also offer strategies to deal with shame when writing about the uncomfortable, and strategies to write with distance and self-reflection about difficult subject matter.
The course is designed to take you 6-8 hours to complete, but can be accomplished in short stages, or at your convenience.
