Info

In this workshop, we'll read Tara Westover's bestselling memoir "Educated" from the lens of a writer. We'll learn how to deconstruct Tara's book to understand what makes the memoir work from a reader standpoint. We'll analyze the memoir for elements of the writing craft and discuss ways to incorporate similar writing craft elements into your writing to elevate your memoir writing.


Whether you've read "Educated" or have been wanting to read it, dive deeply into this bestseller with writer and magazine editor C Flanagan Flynn. This workshop will be highly engaging and informative with the purpose to help you, as a writer, glean valuable lessons from "Educated". Please purchase "Educated" at least two weeks prior to the workshop to leave yourself ample time to read before the workshop. Instructor will supply notebooks (or bring your computer).


C Flanagan Flynn is a writer and editor whose writing has been published in The New York Times, Memoir Magazine, Brain Child, and Brain Teen. She has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize twice and was a finalist for the Frank McCourt Memoir Prize in 2018.
