Starting on Saturday, Jan. 29, published author Maribeth Fischer, will lead the first of a three-part memoir workshop at the Corner Cupboard Inn, located at 50 Park Avenue in Rehoboth Beach.The workshops will be limited in size (8-10 participants) so that each participant will have ample time for his or her work to be discussed.
Fischer, an award-winning essayist who taught memoir workshops most recently in the Master of Fine Arts program at Virginia Commonwealth University, prefers the small classes, because ,memories are tricky, and you can,t always predict where the memories will lead.,
Writers of memoir, Fischer says, often need more time and the right kind of space to figure out what the story is really about.
Already renowned for its hosting of elegant weddings and retreats, the inn seemed especially suited to host the class, according to Fischer.
The workshops, which will run from 1 to 2:30 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 29; Saturday, Feb. 5; and Saturday, Feb. 19, are geared toward writers at all levels who have an idea for a memoir along with the desire to write it, but aren,t sure how to begin and, once having begun, how to sustain the story.Fischer says that people often think they don,t have a story to tell or that their story isn,t important or interesting enough, but the problem isn,t with the story at all.
