LIFE WRITING


  • The Writer’s Block 1020 Fremont Street Las Vegas, NV, 89101 United States (map)

THURSDAYS: MARCH 9 & 16
FROM 4:00-5:30PM

For twelve students, ages 13–18

From Cheryl Strayed to Augusten Borroughs, memoir is one of the most vibrant and sought-after genres in contemporary literature. It’s also one of the most accessible—everyone has a story to tell. In this workshop for high-school students, participants will learn strategies for writing compelling narratives about their own lives. They will also explore methods for adapting their writing to the constraints of a college-admission essay, making this workshop practical to just about anybody engaged in the admissions process. 

This activity is funded, in part, by an Artist Fellowship award from the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency.

This workshop is is taught by Dawn-Michelle Baude and is free of charge.
