Workshop: Writing Memoir

  • Blue Hill Public Library 5 Parker Point Road Blue Hill, ME, 04614 United States (map)

Workshop with Deborah Joy Corey, author of Settling Twice.

Deborah Joy Corey believes that every life is composed of stories. Join her for a creative workshop that will serve as a starting point for each participant to shape a singular life story in writing, or to begin a longer piece with the goal of a completed memoir.

Through readings, prompts, and group discussions, Deborah will guide participants in finding their unique voice on the page. On completion of the workshop, each writer will have a solid foundation to continue working on their own.

Deborah Joy Corey is the author of two critically acclaimed novels, Losing Eddie and The Skating Pond. Her many prize-winning short stories have been printed in numerous anthologies and writing textbooks. Her memoir, Settling Twice has recently been released in both Canada and the U.S..
