Current workshops

What you’ll need to participate in a memoir writing workshop: A willingness to take chances with your own writing, and an open and generous attitude toward your fellow writers’ projects (absolutely required). You may also need a way to make readable copies of your writing to share in the workshop, although accommodations can be made. Experience required: None

Questions: Email me, Barb Burt, at


I am in the process of planning two sets of memoir workshops of six weeks each, to be held at the Boothbay Harbor Memorial Library and Damariscotta’s Skidompha Library. Actual times, locations, and fees still to be determined. Please let me know if you are interested by sending me an email. Thanks!
