Circle participants must have taken the “Writing Micro-Memoirs” workshops.
What does it include? Micro-Memoir Circle II is a place writers bring their micro-memoirs (up to 750 words) and get educated, quality feedback. Those envisioning a magazine-length piece or book-length collection get help from Lorraine in brainstorming their project. Participants, who become familiar with each other’s style and stories over time, become a community that supports each other’s work before and after publication. Lorraine often shares book industry news items, tips, and opportunities in the sessions. The atmosphere of the circle is always friendly and the commentary astute. Participants produce a body of written, polished work. When one series is over, a new six-month series begins.
When you sign up, you’re with us for five consecutive months. The sixth month is a makeup month in case you weren't able to attend one of the other dates. Everyone, however, is welcome all six months.
