Memoir Writing Workshop Aug. 5

ELLSWORTH — Ellen Herrling will lead a memoir writing workshop at Woodlawn on Friday, Aug. 5, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Using Natalie Goldberg’s technique of timed writing practices, participants will discover their authentic voice to tell stories from their life and explore their meaning and power.

Herrling has taught writing workshops for after-school elementary students and adults in community settings in Orland and Bucksport and on Mount Desert Island since 2004.

She was a part of the MDI Writing Group with poet Candice Stover from 1993-2006 and had prose and poetry published in local literary journals and newspapers.

The cost to attend the workshop is $60 for Woodlawn members and $70 for nonmembers. Participants are asked to bring a bag lunch and pen and paper.

As space is limited, pre-registration is required by calling 667-8671 or e-mailing [email protected].
