Marva K. Blackmore

Writing workshop at the MAC in Parksville

Marva K. Blackmore is again offering a memoir-writing workshop on six consecutive Monday afternoons starting on Monday, Oct. 24

Marva K. Blackmore, a well-known local storyteller, writer, and editor, is again offering a memoir-writing workshop on six consecutive Monday afternoons starting on Monday, Oct. 24 and continuing until Nov. 28 at the McMillan Arts Centre (133 McMillan St.) in Parksville from 1-3:30 p.m.

Using the time-honoured techniques utilized by storytellers around the world, Blackmore will show the participants how to apply those techniques to their memoir stories.

She will help them unleash their stories and capture them on paper. Once the stories begin to flow, she will then show the participants ways to organize those stories to begin to create a memoir.

An experienced storyteller and workshop leader, Blackmore will help guide the workshop participants through the process of constructing their stories from their favourite and most vivid memories. Blackmore has also spent the last few years helping people write and edit their memoirs and she will bring that experience to this workshop.

Registration and payment of the $135 registration fee is required in advance. All materials are included in the fees. The last workshop sold out quickly, so early registration is advised.

Participants can register online by visiting www.wordweaver.info/workshops.  For more information, email Blackmore at storyteller.marva@shaw.ca or call 250-594-3221.
