The Memoir Writing Workshop is designed for women who are considering, or in the process of, writing a memoir. Getting to the root of what we’re trying to write can be difficult, and often it’s not clear where to start and where to end. Everyone has a story to tell, and this workshop will help you articulate your experiences.
During the online Memoir Writing Workshop we will:
- Participate in 4 writing activities designed to open our writing and reveal the stories we yearn to tell
- Delve into our imagination to uncover key events from our pasts
- Share our writing with a community of women writers
- Create a plan for writing our memoirs
Once you complete the workshop, you will have the opportunity to:
- Publish your experiences on Pink Pangea
- Receive feedback on your writing from Pink Pangea’s editor
- Gain exposure for your writing
- Access the Pink Pangea Writers’ Facebook group, where we share press trip giveaways, writing opportunities, books to review, and more
- All participants will receive a recording of the workshop
Time: 1.5 hours

“The workshop provided a safe and inspiring space to think about my own writing, and hear from other travelers and writers. I came away with some concrete tools, and an idea or two for future pieces!” – Rachel Romesburg Rice
