Heirloom Writing Workshop - Elizabeth Mack

In this workshop, you will learn a simple 3-step process of compiling and writing your life story. We will first work on re-remembering our stories, compiling ideas on what to include. We will then discuss methods of organizing our narratives, including creative ways that reflect each person’s background and interests. The workshop will culminate in outlining and composing the first essay. At the end of the day, you should leave with an outline of your ”Heirloom” collection and a draft of the first essay.
