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 Memoir Writing Workshop we will:
- Participate in two 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
After completing workshops, women have written for major publications, launched their own blogs, or continued to write in their journals. Others have simply enjoyed trying something new.
Date: October 21, 2018

About the facilitator
Jaclyn Mishal is a co-founder of Pink Pangea. A writing teacher and an inspirational public speaker, Jaclyn specializes in guiding people to express themselves fully. Her creative, guided writing activities help even the most seasoned writers break out of their habits and expand their abilities. Jaclyn has led writing and Fearless Living workshops internationally in partnership with colleges and companies, including Barnard College, Mount Holyoke College, Smith College, REI, and Hostelling International. According to Jaclyn, writing enables us to access parts of ourselves that we may have trouble expressing otherwise.
“I came out of it a different person than I went in…[Jaclyn] made us linger in our discomfort long enough to compel us to make a change. In fact, she had to relinquish control in order for it to be a catalyst. That’s a mark of a great teacher.” – Stephen Elliot
“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
“I love traveling. And I love writing. So when a friend told me about the Pink Pangea writing workshop, I went right away. And it opened a new sphere of writing for me.” – Britta Kollberg
