Writing memoir requires transformation of complex, often incomprehensible emotions into clear words with which a reader could empathize. Learning from our memories comes from allowing ourselves to explore the gray areas and know that feelings – good or bad – are important. Understanding memories and perceptions is essential to this process. The writer needs to be sensitive to the idea that others involved in these may have different perceptions and memories and may not want to share their personal matters with the world. Open to adults of any age.
