Memories are the Stories You Tell Yourself

By: Jarred McGinnis

Video / Fiction / 14-16

This masterclass will demonstrate that we all have stories to tell, and our unique personal experiences can be the starting point for our writing. What to write about is always the question. Join writer Jarred McGinnis in some fun exercises to show how lived experiences (yours and others’) can be the starting point for your fiction. At the end of the session, you should see that everyone, especially you, has stories worth telling. This workshop is roughly 60minutes including writing time. If you’re short of time skip to 4:56 to start the first writing activity.
