SummaryDiscover how to get to the heart of your personal story for essays and memoir with memoirist and writing instructor Theo Nestor.
DescriptionMany writers experience a longing to write about their own lives but little idea of where to begin, of where to dig to unearth the stories you know are there somewhere. Together, we will drill down and find those stories. The class will include some lecture and discussion, but the bulk of the session will be spent on writing prompts. Bring your laptop or pen and paper and your willingness to write and discover. 



Theo Pauline Nestor is the author of “Writing Is My Drink: A Writer’s Story of Finding Her Voice (And a Guide to How You Can Too)” and “How to Sleep Alone in a King-Size Bed: A Memoir of Starting Over.” She teaches at Hugo House and has the memoir certificate course for the University of Washington’s Professional & Continuing Education program since 2006.
