Memoir Classes – via Zoom and In-person – for 2023
PSBVA’s Linda Wisniewski will once again offer her very popular 6 month Zoom Memoirs Writing Classes starting on the 1st Monday evenings from 7-9 pm beginning February 6 through July 3. [Feb. 6th, March 6th, April 3rd, May 1st, June 5th, and July 3rd]
Linda’s 6 month, In-person Memoirs Class will meet in the Cultural Center on the 3rd Wednesday afternoons from 1-3 pm. beginning May 17 through October 18. [May 17th, June 21st, July 19th, August 16th, September 20th, & October 18th]
$200 registration required (*see below for details) for each 6 month class, either Zoom or In-person.
These two classes will guide you towards centering on one segment of your life and turning it into a compelling story, whether your goal is to share it with family and friends or to publish it for a wider audience.
Each session includes time to practice writing that month’s lesson and to give and receive gentle, constructive feedback.
Between class sessions, you will have the opportunity to discuss articles on memoir writing and to share your writing with other students and the instructor for a more comprehensive response.
Linda C. Wisniewski writes about life and the connections we make by giving each other the space and time to be heard. A former feature writer and columnist for the Bucks County Herald and the Bucks County Women’s Journal, Linda’s work has been published widely in literary magazines, newspapers and anthologies and has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize. She is the author of the memoir, Off Kilter, published by Pearlsong Press, and a novel, Where the Stork Flies, published by Sand Hill Review Press. More about her at http://www.lindawis.com.
