All Things Memoir Writing Group (Hybrid Class)


Starts Thursday, October 5, 2023 - Meets Weekly: 10/5, 10/12, 10/19, 10/25 After the incredible turnout for “All Things Memoir” in July 2023, we’re launching an ongoing writing group as requested by our wonderful community of writers! Whether you’re in search of inspiration, encouragement, wisdom, or prompts and exercises to keep you focused on your writing, this group welcomes everyone at any level. This will be a hybrid class. It will meet every week, month to month. The first three weeks will be over Zoom, while the fourth meeting of the month will take place in person at Zibby's Bookshop in Santa Monica. Instructor Reema Zaman brings her experience as a writing teacher, a published author, and her impassioned faith in every writer to this weekly group to create a singular and powerful experience. Join us to be part of the magic.
