Intro to Memoir Writing with Matt Ferraz

Would you like to share your life experience with the world? Crafting a memoir book or essay can be tough if you never tried it before. Its main goal isn’t to share historical information, but rather to put the reader on the author’s shoes and make them feel what the author felt. This workshop was created to make that process easier and more fulfilling for you.

Our Intro to Memoir Writing with Matt Ferraz is Tuesdays, October 20–27, 2020 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Arizona time on Zoom. To learn more and register, visit our website at
