Memoir and Literary Craft Workshops I In my workshop, Speak, Memory: Beginning Your Memoir, I begin with warm-up exercises that help participants access important memories, and then guide them in writing and editing their own short memoir. Craft workshops include work with metaphor, language, and sentences. I teach English and creative writing at OSU-Cascades in Bend. My essays and interviews have appeared in The Sun, Northwest Review, Marlboro Review, and High Desert Journal, among others.
