Roots & Branches: Writing Your Family Tree

5-week workshop in which you’ll dig deep to hit the roots of your family tree and write stories that you can pass down for generations.

Family is a rich and layered topic to explore in creative nonfiction. Through the course of this workshop, you will:

  • DIG DEEP to hit the roots of your family tree and write the stories that you can pass down to the next generation;
  • CRAFT honest
