The Memoir Workshops
WITH PAM BERNARD
LATE FALL SESSIONS IN WALPOLE
Award-winning author Pam Bernard announces the second round of fall sessions of her popular memoir workshops, to begin the week of November 6th, at her home in Walpole, NH. These sessions will be held on Wednesdays and Fridays, and will be 6 weeks duration, beginning November 8 & 10.
Process is everything in memoir, and the lesson is that we never really know ourselves until we begin to write about our unique experience. A safe, nurturing space in which to begin, to experiment, to challenge one’s assumptions, is crucial. Ginny Harvey Dawson, author of Counseling and School Psychology, said of Bernard’s teaching style: Pam provides a safe and supportive atmosphere that empowers class members to write and rewrite about sometimes painful personal memories until they have produced fine work.
Pam Bernard, author of four books, is a poet, painter, editor, and adjunct professor at Franklin Pierce University. She received her MFA in Creative Writing from Warren Wilson College and BA from Harvard University. Her awards include fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
