“The “writing memoir” workshop taught me how to write more vividly and imbue the story with verisimilitude. If a piece is authentic, my personal experience can become universal—and reach the reader on a deeper level. This was really stimulating, as I felt invited to experiment with my own writing.

The atmosphere was also really striking. The entire workshop took place in a professional and safe space where I could express myself and receive constructive feedback. I tend to be very critical towards what I write, but letting others hear my work was a huge gift, a sort of reality check that gave me further stimulus to keep writing and value the result of those efforts.”
