Memoir Writing Workshop at Vineland Public Library


Ordinary people have the most extraordinary lives. We all have a story to tell, and now is the time to tell it. The Vineland Library Summer Memoir Classes will help you take your memories, reflections, and realizations and bring them to life. Over the course of four Fridays, participants will be working on the creation of their stories, as well as using techniques to hone rich description and dialogue. All are welcome, whether you have never written before, or have been writing your entire life. The workshop will allow you to start fresh and build throughout the sessions, so no level of expertise is necessary – we are simply looking for people who have a story burning inside and want to stoke the fire.

The workshops will be hosted by Amanda Richardson, writing professor at Stockton University. Classes will be held on Fridays, July 14th, 21st, 28th, and August 4th from 11:00 a.m-1:00p.m. in the library’s Community Event Room, located on the first floor. Students must attend all 4 classes. These free classes are sponsored by the Friends of the Vineland Public Library. Class size is limited and registration is required. Please call 856-794-4244 ext: 4243 to register. The Vineland Public Library is located at 1058 E. Landis Avenue.
