Patricia Hampl has described memoir as the “tango between memory and imagination.” Into this dance we invite the reader to become our partner in discovering the “hidden narrative” of our past. During this highly interactive workshop, we act as both writers and readers, identifying the techniques we find most useful in first engaging the reader’s interest and later winning the reader’s trust. Specifically we will look inside the intimate relationship of plot, conflict, character, and arresting detail to find the best ways to move your life into story.
Judith Huge has spent over 30 years developing innovative approaches to both learning and writing. As president of her own national consulting firm, teacher of both undergraduate and graduate-level college courses, and director of writing workshops across the country, she has made a difference in the way thousands of people find, craft, and promote their writing voices. She is a co-author of 101 Ways You Can Help, a guide to grief, as well as “A Middle Aged Woman and the Sea,” a tale of loss and transition published in the Traveler’s Tales anthology Women in the Wild. In the words of a recent participant, “This was an experience I will always treasure...it opened up so many possibilities to explore.” Opening up possibilities is a strength Judy cherishes and shares.
