Write Your Own “Snapshot” Memoir
Do you have a memory floating around in your mind? Harness that moment by writing your own “Snapshot Memoir.” We will use a plethora of writing prompts and exercises to mine for a powerful snapshot and then write a 1-2 page memoir using Donald Murray’s “The Stranger in the Photo is Me” as a mentor text. If possible, bring a photo of yourself from more than 5 years ago.
The course will be taught by Heather Douglas, high school writing teacher, freelance writer, and illustrator. She has self-published two hand-illustrated coloring books, a book of poetry and various zines. She was the recipient of Astoria Visual Arts W-i-R Writer Residency and has been published in various publications.
