“Writers are the custodian of memory and memories die with their owner,” said William Zinsser, author of Writing about your Life: A Journey into the Past. The question is how do you turn fragments of memory into stories that others care about? This workshop will help you preserve your memories by recording them. You will look in at who you are and back at where you've come from. Open to all levels, all genres. No previous experience required. This workshop is separate to the previous memoir workshop hosted by NBN TLV and is open to those who have already participated and those new to the workshop.
