Casa Belvedere Invites You To Write Your Memories With New Year’s Writing & Revision Workshops With Author Maria Giura

Writing Your Memories: New Year’s Writing & Revision Workshops with author Maria Giura
No experience necessary, just a notebook, pen and desire to record the past.
Saturday Mornings from 10 am to noon: Jan. 21, 2023 (Generative), Feb. 25 (Revision), March 25 (Generative) and April 22 (Revision)
Are there memories you want to write or (family) stories you want to record? Or maybe you have a piece of writing you’ve already started, something you wrote recently or years ago, that you’d like to pick up and receive help with/constructive feedback on?
Join us for all or some of these supportive monthly workshops which will leave you with concrete suggestions to get closer to the truth of your own stories. January and March are generative – you will write new material – and February and April are revision – you’ll get feedback on something you’ve already written.
For the revision workshops, once you’ve registered, you’ll be asked to email in advance a writing piece that is maximum 700 words.

What Participants Have to Say:  

  • “The [short] readings were spot-on, serving as entry ways into lively discussions but also inspiring our own original writing. Brava!”

  • “I just loved the opportunity to read, write, and, if I wanted to, share. These workshops brought back memories that were tucked into the recess of my mind and deepened my interest in reflecting and writing about my culture. 

  • “I’ll take these workshops again and again. So lovely to meet so many nice, new people. Excellent, skilled, and inspiring instructor.”
