MBCN and SHARE had a terrific time with Abigail Thomas during  Part One of our Memoir Writing webinar. She is funny, warm and honest–what a pleasant distraction on a cold winter’s day.

You can listen to a recording of her talk here; Abigail’s presentation, including several of the poems she referenced, can be found here.

Abigail gave us an assignment for next week’s session. Write two page on one of the following topics:

  • 9 Things I Do Remember & 9 Things I Don’t Remember
  • It Takes Place in Water
  • It’s Not Funny (With “It’s not funny” being the second sentence.)
  • There Are Many Things I Miss
  • I’m Afraid of the Attic
  • Any Ten Years of Your Life (Using sentences that are only three words long).
