New One-on-One Autofiction/Memoir Mentorship with Frances Badalamenti!
by Writing Workshops Staff
6 months ago
This is a 3-month Individual Mentorship + Group Workshop (Jan, Feb, March) that includes bi-weekly 1-on-1 meetings with Frances (1hr) and also bi-weekly group workshops (2hrs). The focus can be fiction or nonfiction, but the emphasis is on writing from personal experience: autofiction (autobiographical fiction), memoir or personal essays.
You do need to be working on a full-length book project; this is more about accountability and developing a consistent writing practice. Some level of writing experience is preferred. You do not need to be a published writer, but Frances requires a commitment to write on a regular basis during these three months.
You will be encouraged to develop a consistent, committed writing practice. You will hone in on developing your voice. You will gain an understanding of story structure. You will learn how to develop your writing with the support of community.
And most importantly: my promise is to create a safe, inclusive space so you feel comfortable doing your work and sharing your work. This will be an ongoing part of our dialogue both individually and within the group element.
