Josephine Humphreys will be dropping by the Sophia Institute to host a lecture entitled: Writing From Memory. According to Humphreys "We may think of fiction and memoir as being opposites, but in fact there’s a surprisingly thin line between the two. The essence of both is story. And to make story, both the novelist and the memoirist come to their task already provisioned with the necessary material, a certain amount of mysterious stuff in their heads – experiences, old dreams, longings, relics, hopes, puzzles, lessons, regrets, adventures – things that can be understood as belonging to the larger general category of memory. In this workshop we’ll talk about the memory-treasury, the writer’s principal resource, and how it can be accessed for effective fiction and memoir."
The Writing From Memory lecture presented by Josephine Humphreys will be held tonight, March 25th, at 6:30 pm. Tuition for the evening lecture will be $25 in advance and $35 at the door. The Weekend Workshop (includes evening lecture) will be held on Saturday, March 26, from 9:30 am - 4 pm and tuition will be $195. TIckets are available for purchase here.
