What makes "Eat, Pray, Love," "The Liar's Club" or "Angela's Ashes" garner dazzling reviews or make readers weep or howl with laughter? How do you impose order on a thousand memories? Why is it important to resist the temptation to summarize your life?

In this workshop, we'll identify what makes great memoirs unforgettable, as well as identify moments from your own life: the lowest ebb, the most unusual, shattering, funny or triumphant incidents that reveal your character and move readers.

Madeline Sharples, Christina Hoag, Alexis Krasilovsky, Marlan Warren, Sara Anne Fox (M)
