Mining Your Mind for Stories

Open up the cache of interesting stories you hold for memoir writing and creative nonfiction. Why do you have the name you do? What is the most important place from your past and why? Who is the most important person? What are they like? Using three exercises, participants will delve into their own memories to find stories to tell and come away with notes for stories, a description of a place, and a character sketch to make their memoirs rich and creative.
