In this one week workshop participant will build a personal essay utilizing prompts from Lockhart's The Soul of the Full-Length Manuscript Turning Life's Wounds into a Work of Literary Fiction, Memoir, or Poetry.
This workshop will center around a series of prompts designed to help you build a short story or personal essay (short memoir piece) utilizing reflective elements of one of your relationship journeys. You will imbue your work with the character journey you have spent your life developing, your own.
