Everyone has a story to tell, and writing a memoir is a great way to share yours. One way to make your memoir stand out from the crowd is to apply the techniques of fiction to writing nonfiction. In this workshop, we will focus on writing scenes and sequels (i.e., the narrative section following the scene). We will have in-class writing exercises and critiques of participants’ works-in-progress. We will also examine scene/sequel combinations in The Glass Castle, by Jeannette Walls. Open to beginners and experienced writers. Registration closes July 20. Register today by emailing, calling 443-595-7548, or purchasing a ticket at Barbara Morrison, who writes under the name B. Morrison, is the author of a memoir, Innocent: Confessions of a Welfare Mother, and two poetry collections, Terrarium and Here at Least. Barbara’s award-winning work has been published in anthologies and magazines. For more information, visit her website and blog at
