Writing from Memory with Sarah Van Name
Shop (Please call if you want to see if we have it in store)
What does it mean to "write what you know"? Sometimes, it means writing what you remember. In this one-hour workshop for teen writers, participants will learn how to use sensory details to enhance their writing and create evocative scenes based on their own memories.
Sarah Van Name is a young adult fiction writer. Her first book, The Goodbye Summer, tells the story of a girl torn between a new friendship and an unhealthy relationship. Van Name grew up in North Carolina and attended Duke University twice--once for a teenage creative writing camp and once as an undergraduate--and now lives and works in Durham with her husband, Ben, and her dog, Toast.
