Hi folks, this came to my inbox this morning, and I thought at least one of our members might be interested. Here you go:
The Howard County chapter [of Maryland Writer’s Association] is offering a a free memoir-writing workshop led by memoirist and poet Barbara Morrison at its next monthly meeting, Thursday, February 21, from 7:00-9:00 p.m. at Sunrise Senior Living, 6500 Freetown Road, in Columbia.
Sometimes getting started is the hardest part of writing; other times, it’s getting restarted after you’ve stalled. Barbara Morrison, author of the award-winning memoir, Innocent: Confessions of a Welfare Mother, will provide tips and tactics for kicking off (or reviving) your memoir and lead some writing exercises to jump-start your creativity.
After the workshop someone will get a door prize, and if you bring a new or gently-used book for Domestic Violence Center of Howard County, you’ll receive an extra ticket, doubling your chances to win.
About the speaker:
An accomplished poet, Ms. Morrison is also the author of the poetry collection Here at Least, and a contributor to the MWA Books Life in Me Like Grass on Fire and New Lines from the Old Line State.
