Six Narrative Techniques to Bring Your Memoir to Life

Introductory/Intermediate | In this writing-intensive workshop, memoir author Ingrid Ricks will teach you the six key narrative writing techniques necessary to bring your memoir to life. These include openings that grab, character development, emotions, effective dialogue, active settings, sensory details, and general tips to show vs. tell your story. Bring your laptop or notebook and be prepared to tap into your creative juices.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
