Memoir Writing Class at Millburn Library in June 2018

There are many ways to write about a life: a book-length project to be shared with children or grandchildren; first-person narratives about pivotal events or experiences; prose poems. In this workshop, we will share our life stories and receive encouragement and critique on them. In-class exercises and prompts will take writers in unexpected directions. No prior writing experience is required.

This class will be taught by Theresa Burns. She holds an MFA in creative writing from Sarah Lawrence College. Her poems, reviews and nonfiction have appeared in The New York TimesPrairie SchoonerBellevue Literary ReviewNew Ohio Review and upstreet, among other places. An in-house book editor for nearly 20 years, Burns is the author of the book Two Train Town (2017) and has taught writing at Seton Hall University, FIT and the 92nd Street Y.

This program is free to all; however, you must register as space is limited. Registering for the program on June 5 registers you for all 4 classes.

This program is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Millburn Library. The Millburn Library is located at 200 Glen Ave., Millburn, NJ 07041 and can be reached at 973-376-1006.
