OK, we’ve got two hours. Judy is going to cram into this workshop every tip she wishes she had known before she started writing personal essays and memoir. She’ll discuss beginnings, voice, structure, descriptive details, reflection, scene vs. summary, and tension. She’ll even talk about a writer’s self-doubt and how she keeps going in spite of those little voices that say, “You can’t do it. You’re not a writer.” For beginners and experienced writers alike.

About the Instructor: Judy Goldman is the author of six books:  two memoirs, Together: A Memoir of a Marriage and a Medical Mishap (published by Nan A. Talese/Doubleday on February 12, 2019) and Losing My Sister; two novels, Early Leaving and The Slow Way Back; and two books of poetry, Wanting To Know the End and Holding Back Winter. Losing My Sister was a finalist for both Southeast Booksellers Alliance’s Memoir of the Year and ForeWord Review’s Memoir of the Year. Her work has appeared in The Southern Review, Kenyon Review, Gettysburg Review, Ohio Review, Prairie Schooner, Shenandoah, Crazyhorse, and Real Simple magazine; her book reviews in The Washington Post and The Charlotte Observer; her commentaries on public radio in Chapel Hill and Charlotte.
