Everything, Really Everything, Judy Goldman Knows about Memoir | Mecklenburg

May 7 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In this immersive class, Judy Goldman will cram every tip she wishes she had known before she started writing personal essays and memoir. She’ll discuss beginnings, voice, structure, descriptive details, reflection, scene vs. summary, and tension. She’ll even talk about a writer’s self-doubt and how she keeps going despite those little voices that say, “You can’t do it. You’re not a writer.” For beginners and experienced writers alike.

Judy Goldman is the award-winning author of the memoir Child, which was named a Katie Couric Media Must-Read Book for 2022. Another recent memoir, Together: A Memoir of a Marriage and a Medical Mishap, was named one of the best books of 2019 by Real Simple magazine and received a starred review from Library Journal.

Cost: $65
