The Memoir Festival will be held July 16-18 at Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY – and if you have a passion for memoir, this is the place to be!
Hosted by Fred Poole and Marta Szabo of Authentic Writing, the weekend will feature: Malachy and Alphie McCourt, Nick Flynn (The Ticking Is The Bomb and Another Bullshit Night in Suck City) Saïd Sayrafiezadeh (When Skateboards Will Be Free), Susanna Sonnenberg (Her Last Death) and Darcey Steinke (Easter Everywhere).
Fred and I were co-founders of the first Memoir Festival held in Woodstock, New York in February 2009, and this is our second year hosting the festival at Omega. We have chosen our very favorite, most lively writers.
There will be workshops as well as discussions, readings, thoughts on blogging and self-publishing, time to talk and ask questions and share your own work.
Come for the weekend, and steep yourself in memoir!
