San Diego Memoir Writers Association is a community of local writers committed to the craft and business of memoir writing. Our purpose is to create a community of inspired, nurtured, and educated memoirists. One of the ways in which we do this is by hosting monthly member meetings with speakers who educate our writers on both the craft and business of memoir writing. Writers of all levels are welcome and encouraged to join us to help build their own writing tribe.
The June 2019 San Diego Memoir Association monthly meeting was the second of two free meetings this year. Expert facilitator Marni Freedman led the thirty-five attendees through a process for healing through writing. She previewed material from her forthcoming book Write to Magic: How to Get Unstuck, Access Authentic Courage and Live in the Creative Flow of Life.
With empathy and compassion, Marni introduced creative approaches for identifying wounding moments and turning them into fuel for a creative and bold life. Participants examined their life experiences through free-writing prompts that can lead to radical self-acceptance.
Even in the hot July temperatures, the workshop was packed and everyone walked away feeling rejuvenated and inspired to continue writing projects or begin new ones.
Founded in December of 2016, San Diego Memoir Writers Association is located at Liberty Station in Point Loma. Please send us an email if you’d like to learn more about the organization, get involved, or come speak at one of our monthly member events.
We look forward to meeting you!
