Writing a Memoir workshop
November 18

The PEI Writers’ Guild is sponsoring a one-day workshop called “Writing a Memoir” on November 18. A memoir can focus on many different aspects of a person’s public or private life. Examples include: your career, your amazing personal experiences, your family history, a family enterprise, or crazy adventures in your misspent youth, to name just a few.

The workshop will be led by three Island authors of very different memoir books—Dianne Morrow, Roger Gordon, and Bruce McCallum. Dianne Morrow’s Fixing Up the Farmhouse: Forty Years of Living, Loving and Lamenting, is about the trials and tribulations of reclaiming and refurbishing their Island farmhouse over several decades. She has also written a memoir book of poetry. Roger Gordon’s Starting to Frame recounts his experiences growing up in Sheffield, England in a somewhat dysfunctional family in the early 1960s. His objective was to highlight mental health challenges. Bruce McCallum’s Memories of the Chukuni Lumber Company includes a history of the company, a look at village life in the sticks of northwest Ontario and tales of mischief from the children in the town. 

The three authors will detail what motivated them to start their memoir projects and how they researched and organized the information they gathered. They will also highlight the lessons they learned along the way. Workshop participants will be encouraged to discuss their own project ideas and to engage in writing exercises that could be used as a starting point for their memoirs.

Writing a Memoir will take place at the Haviland Club in Charlottetown from 9:30 am–3:30 pm. The cost is $30 to members of the PEI Writers’ Guild and $40 to non-members. Beverages and snacks will be provided. Participants may bring a lunch or go out to a nearby restaurant between 12 noon and 1:00 pm.
