Cat will be a featured author at the Carolina Mountains Literary Festival in Burnswell, NC. She will be offering this workshop:
Journey from Night into Day: Beginning, Continuing and Deepening Your Memoir
Many know how to begin a memoir, but sometimes we ask ourselves what comes next? How do we continue? We keep writing, but eventually we want to know how to deepen the story so that we recognize themes, ideas, and universality to enrich our own life story and to reach out to our readers. In this workshop, attendees will write to prompts to begin the journey, then further an idea to the next level of development and then finally finding within the piece a spark of light that allows us to follow it home.
She will also offer two readings/discussions during the conference, as well as book signings. See all that’s offered at cmlitfest.org.
