MBCN and SHARE had a terrific time with Abigail Thomas during  Part One of our Memoir Writing webinar. She is funny, warm and honest–what a pleasant distraction on a cold winter’s day.

You can listen to a recording of her talk here; Abigail’s presentation, including several of the poems she referenced, can be found here.

Abigail gave us an assignment for next week’s session. Write two page on one of the following topics:

  • 9 Things I Do Remember & 9 Things I Don’t Remember
  • It Takes Place in Water
  • It’s Not Funny (With “It’s not funny” being the second sentence.)
  • There Are Many Things I Miss
  • I’m Afraid of the Attic
  • Any Ten Years of Your Life (Using sentences that are only three words long).

 

Don't be shy! Send your two pages to cbenjamin@sharecancersupport.org

Don’t be shy! Send your two pages to cbenjamin@sharecancersupport.org

 

Abigail has graciously agreed to read participants’ submissions and share some of them next week. When you’ve got two pages on your chosen topic, send them to SHARE’s Christine Benjamin: cbenjamin@sharecancersupport.org. Christine will send them on to Abigail.

It will be fun–why not try it?

Part Two is Tuesday, February 24, 2015, from 1:30 to 2:30 PM EST. If you haven’t done so, register here: http://www.sharecancersupport.org/share-new/learn/programs/write_your_own_memoir/

Hope you can join us!

    I could listen to Abigail Thomas read the phone book. She is so down to earth and her advice is so practical. Really enjoyed her talk; look forward to next week’s!
