KWG offers memoir workshop

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – The Knoxville Writers’ Guild (KWG) will offer an interactive, two-hour workshop, “Writing Your Story,” on Saturday, July 16, 2016 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Central United Methodist Church, 201 E. Third Avenue in Knoxville. Free and accessible parking is available.

Award-winning journalist, writer, and educator Bonny Millard will show participants how to turn personal stories into publishable narratives while considering the right vehicle: essay, profile, memoir or fiction. No previous writing or publishing experience is needed.

“As a journalist, one of my favorite assignments has been interviewing interesting people and writing their stories,” Millard said. “Those people’s stories have stuck with me through the years and remain as engaging now as they did then. I want to help others learn to find their stories and develop ways to get those stories down.”
