March 17, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Friday, happening 10 times
10-week virtual memoir class offered by UofO, taught by developmental editor Susan Hasho
What’s the Story? A Memoir writing class
Do you have some stories you’d like to tell? There may be stories about your life that you want to tell your children or grandchildren, perhaps about another country or culture you came from or your parents came from. Was there an experience that changed your life or your neighborhood? How about if you were in the military and you want to share something about that? If you have a desire to share or describe anything that you are fascinated by, care about or even want to change, this class is a place to do that.
What’s the Story is a 10-week writing class that intends to provoke, free and guide anyone to write a memoir that reflects their own unique voice and life experience. There will be interaction with everyone in the class, homework, time for each person to talk about their writing or their questions about what they would like to write as well as feedback from the teacher. Anyone who chooses may read their writing at a designated time period during the class.
Susan Hasho is a developmental editor which is an editor involved in the mysterious process of enabling writers and anyone interested in writing to find their way through the maze of expectations, judgement and even fear to find the true heart of what they want to write. She has trained and worked as an actor and writer, and moved into the advertising field to work as a copy editor for advertising agencies and Fortune 500 companies. She began working with writers several years ago as an editor and it became her goal to teach a writing class that would enable people to be as free of self-criticism and inhibiting expectations as possible in order to write clearly and openly with joy.
