Beginning on Friday afternoon, October 2, we will alternate between instructional sessions, writing assignments and ample time for your own writing. We also aim to leave space (in your brain) and time for walking the beach and a spa treatment or two—all grist for your writing that can be equally as valuable to your progress!

The retreat will begin on Friday at 3 pm, continue for a full day on Saturday, and end at noon on Sunday.

One-on-one mentoring sessions with both Kaylie Jones and Judy Mandel will be scheduled during our break times.

Sessions will include:

  1. How to jump start your memoir

  2. Perspective and the narrator’s role

  3. Structuring your content

  4. Elements of writing scenes

  5. Trouble Shooting Your Memoir

  6. Ethical questions

  7. Family concerns

  8. Publishing options and issues
