Spring News from Theo

Hi Readers,IMG_1550

Just a quick post to tell you what I’ve been up to. This year I’ve been teaching two nine-month memoir writing classes–one through Hugo House here in Seattle and the other through the University of Washington’s Professional & Continuing Education department. So I’ve been busy with that, but I also had the opportunity to spend some precious days at Hedgebrook this winter working on a new project. I am very grateful for my time at Hedgebrook, which is a very special residency program here on Washington State’s Whidbey Island. I’ve

started in on a new project (dare I say “book”?), which is too fledgling to talk about yet but that I’m excited about. More about that anon!

More current happenings:

I did this really fun interview with Katie Woodzick’s Theatrical Mustang podcast. If you’re interested in learning more about memoir or are considering taking one of my webinars or yearlong classes, you might find it interesting. You can find out more about the Theatrical Mustang podcast here.

The How to Write a Modern Love Teleseminar on March 22nd with New York Times Modern Love Editor Dan Jones and six Modern Love writers was a huge success. If you missed the live event, you can still purchase the recording via Pay Pal for $79 here: buy now

On Saturday May 9th, I’ll be teaching a Memoir Essentials Class at Hugo House. There are still a few spots open in that class. Learn more and register here.

Tomorrow I’ll be posting my review of an important new book about divorce for children called Divorce Is The Worst (Feminist Press) by Anastasia Higginbotham.

More soon!

  1. I look at these classes and retreats and think how much I would enjoy them, then I think to myself how audacious I am to think I could write a book of any nature when at 67 I’ve never been to college. Shuts me down every time. The retreat cabin looks heavenly. I might give it a go one day. I’m in Portland Oregon so it would be possible. Keep looking for classes around here. I loved your books, by the way.

      InSearch, one of my students, Eleanor, was 86 when I met her. She’d never taken writing classes. Now she’s 92 and she’s sending her manuscript out to agents. It can happen!

      Thanks for reading my work!
