[CANCELED] Memoir Writing Workshop

with Jim Talone

Registration required.

UPDATE (posted 10/26/22): This workshop has been canceled. 

All events are tentatively scheduled and may change. Please see the CMCL Events Calendar on our website, follow us on social media, and subscribe to our weekly eNewsletter for any and all updates.


We all have stories. This workshop is about crafting those stories to create memoirs that are worth reading. Adventures and achievements are great topics; however, some students have created wonderful stories about a family trip or an autumn walk home from school. Sometimes the simple moments linger longest. This is a slightly different memoir class. For those who are willing, it will be geared for publication or sharing of our work. Since we each have different life stories our topics will vary but the class will not. 

Each week we will have a little instruction in the writing process and then a good bit of sharing and feedback on our writing. We will work in small groups so that each student will be able to share a piece of writing each week. 

This is a 6-class series being held on Wednesdays, 2pm-4pm starting October 26th:

  • 10/26
  • 11/2
  • 11/9
  • 11/16
  • [There will be NO CLASS on 11/23]
  • 11/30
  • 12/7

All registrants are required to attend the first class of a series. If absent, your spot will be given to the next in line on the Waitlist.

Jim Talone is a retired school teacher who moved on from teaching writing, photography and movie making to doing it himself. Since his retirement he has worked with the Stone Harbor Museum and helped produced a series of documentary films, including Salt Marsh Stories, Stone Harbor Stories and The Miracle on 81st Street. With Ted Burke he wrote and narrated nearly 50 of the Museum Minutes which told small pieces of the history of Stone Harbor. He recently self-published a memoir of his year in Vietnam called,  “There It Is: A Helicopter Ride and a Purple Heart.”
