Memoir Workshop with Sonja Livingston this month

On Saturday, March 26th, we will hold a Workshop from 11 AM to 1 PM – A Spring Trio: Writing Your Life in Three Parts by Sonja Livingston. The workshop will help you continue or begin writing your life stories by offering three helpful pieces of craft advice, three literary examples, and three writing prompts. The focus will be on crafting short pieces that offer readers vibrant snapshots of your life. There will be time to write and an opportunity to share your words.

Sonja Livingston is the author of four books of nonfiction, including the memoir Ghostbread which won an AWP Book Prize for Nonfiction and has been widely adopted for classroom use. Sonja’s writing has been honored with a New York State Arts Fellowship, an Iowa Review Award, a VanderMey Nonfiction Prize, as well as grants from Vermont Studio Center and The Deming Fund for Women. Her award-winning essays are widely anthologized, appearing in textbooks on memoir writing and journals such as Salon, LitHub and Brevity. Sonja is an associate professor of creative writing at Virginia Commonwealth University. You can find more information here: Home | Mysite ( 

While Sonja will join us virtually, this workshop will take place in person at the Edney Innovation Center, 1100 Market Street, on the 5th floor from 11 AM – 1 PM Eastern. There is plenty of street parking all around.

This 2-hour workshop is only $10 for CWG members and $20 for non-members. Once you have finished registering (form below), you will be provided a Google Meet link, so anyone who wishes to attend the Workshop virtually may.
