“The “Writing Memoir” workshop taught me to think outside the (memory) box. I used the idea of “the remembered moment” to write my personal essay; [the workshop] taught me to write from an emotion, and at the same time, to look at what I write as if I’m sculpting the story for the reader, inviting the reader into my memory. I felt honored to be part of everyone else’s writing process, too.”
