    Do you have a story to tell? Not quite sure how to get started? Or are you lost in the weeds of writing it all down? Join us for this class in which we will break down all the essential elements of memoir: how to determine what to include and what to leave out, which structure might fit your story best, how to handle point of view, how to keep the story moving, and a variety of ways to hook your reader into the story from the beginning. This class is open to writers of all levels, at any stage of crafting a memoir.


    Rachel Weaver is the author of the novel Point of Direction, which Oprah Magazine named a Top Ten Book to Pick Up Now. Point of Direction was chosen by the American Booksellers Association as a Top Ten Debut for Spring 2014, by IndieBound as an Indie Next List Pick, by Yoga Journal as one of their Top Five Suggested Summer Reads and won the 2015 Willa Cather Award for Fiction. Prior to earning her MFA in Writing and Poetics from Naropa University, Rachel worked for the Forest Service in Alaska studying bears, raptors and songbirds. She is on faculty at Regis University‚Äôs low-residency MFA program, and at Lighthouse Writers Workshop where she won the Beacon Award for Teaching Excellence in 2018.
