Lynn Lovegreen: Free Memoir Writing Workshops Start Soon!

To commemorate the historic rise of Anchorage from the first sale of town lots in 1915 to Alaska’s largest city in 2015, 49 Writers will publish a memoir anthology—Anchorage Remembers: 1915-2015—that celebrates the history of Anchorage in the words of those who have lived it. We are currently offering a series of FREE memoir writing workshops taught by local writers to help interested individuals with a story idea for submission. The first takes place at the Pioneer School House on 3rd Avenue, Saturday & Sunday, 1-3 pmJanuary 25 & 26 and February 1 & 2 (8 hours total). 

We are looking for new or experienced writers 50 years and older who are interested in learning about memoir writing, have a story to tell or an idea for a story, want to receive feedback on their writing, and would like to submit a short personal story (up to 1,000 words) they have written to the Anchorage Remembers anthology.

More information can be found on the 49 Writers website at http://www.49writingcenter.org

More workshops are in the works; stay tuned for details! If you have questions, contact anchorageremembers@gmail.com.
