Journalist Mimi Edmunds to lead writing workshop in Lincolnville
Event has passed
LINCOLNVILLE — Longtime journalist Mimi Edmunds will lead “Telling Our Stories,” a memoir and nonfiction writing workshop, on Saturday, Nov. 11, from 2 to 5 p.m., at the Lincolnville Community Library.
What is memoir? What makes a story? And how might a writer tell that story? In addition to introducing these and other questions, Edmunds will share from her memoir, which she has written with her daughter.
Participants will then practice some storytelling by writing their own short pieces in response to a series of prompts. Each person will have the chance to read aloud at least one of their pieces and discuss it with the group. The afternoon will end with a time for people to ask questions and tell about projects they may already be working on.
Edmunds has had a long career in broadcast journalism and documentary film production, including with CBS News, PBS and the Discovery Network. She has taught journalism and filmmaking at the University of Southern California and Emerson College, and since 1986 has been on the faculty of Maine Media in Rockport. More recently, she earned a master’s degree in creative nonfiction from the University of Southern Maine’s Stonecoast Program.
Both beginning and more experienced writers are welcome to participate in this workshop.
There is no charge, but registration is required.
