Gifted writer and writing teacher Lisa Dale Norton, will offer a two-day retreat on The Art and Craft of Memoir Writing July 22-24 at her home in Santa Fe.

Attendees will gather at Lisa’s home and garden and in the cafes and coffee bars of Santa Fe for in-depth discussions about style and trends in memoir, and options for publishing.

Sessions cover truth in memoir, structure and story arc–choosing the memories that belong in your story; the many narrators of memoir–you as a child in the moment, you as an adult looking back, and all the characters you have been in between with all their angles of perception. What voice and insight could each bring to your story?

Together, participants and instructor will weave a supportive and invigorating circle for sharing stories and learning to be better writers. Only ten writers will be accepted.  For more details visit
