Memoir Writing Class

The Calcasieu Parish Public Library of Lake Charles, La. will be holding a FREE six-week memoir writing class each Tuesday night from 6-8 p.m. beginning March 5.

The class will be held at Central Library and seating is limited to 12 participants and registration is required on a first-come, first-served basis.

Each class will focus on a different aspect of memoir writing such as format, narrative, and the fluidity of memory. Participants will learn to use the tools of fiction (scene, character, dialogue) to tell a true story about their lives. Participants who finish the six-week course can expect to complete several short memoir pieces and perhaps develop the foundation of a book-length memoir. Participants will be required to share their work with the class each week. Dr. Gabriel Morley, a writer and librarian, will lead the class.

For more information or to register, contact Morley at 721-7167 or gmorley@calcasieu.lib.la.us.
