James Britton said, “What is memory but how we think it must have been?” John Barth said, “The story of your life is not your life, but your story.” In this workshop we'll brainstorm our past stories, real and imagined. Then, with the help of some creative prompts, we’ll use those memories to create beginnings and first drafts of original narrative poems.
