Memorare

A five-day writing retreat for people already in the process of composing their memoirs. We will meet each day for three hours to discuss, review, and read our work to each other. Ex­ercises may be given, depending on the group’s needs. The rest of the time is your own to write, read, contemplate, walk, pray. The idea is to create a sense of expansiveness in which you may create material that teaches and surprises you.
