Writing Workshop: Memoir and Personal Essay (6 Weeks)

April 15 @ 10:00 am



Join us for a generative writing workshop at the Dairy Arts Center. Learn how to transform your personal experiences into narratives with universal themes. Using interactive discussions, writing exercises, and assigned readings, we will explore the nuances of truth and memory, techniques for developing a compelling first-person narrator, the balance between showing and telling, and strategies for uncovering the deeper significance within your own life experiences. All group discussions promote the goal of building a community of writers offering support, feedback, and encouragement in a safe space for sharing your work. Sessions will be customized to meet the specific needs and interests of the group.

Open to all adults anywhere in their writing journey. Class is limited to 12 participants. $280

Instructor: Brenda Kahn
Brenda Kahn is a Boulder-based artist, celebrated for her poignant, lyric-driven music that blends personal narratives with broader social commentaries. She gained acclaim in the ’90s with her punk-folk music, leading to a deal with Columbia Records and praise for her album “Epiphany in Brooklyn.” She’s toured with musical greats Bob Dylan and Jeff Buckley and authored “Ode to Chores,” a humorous take on motherhood in verse. Her 2024 single “Alright OK” is available on YouTube and Spotify. Kahn’s memoir, set to explore the transformative power of music and writing against the backdrop of the East Village music scene in the ’90s, is forthcoming.
