Point of View in Memoir: Playing with Perspective

In this workshop, we’ll expand the possibilities of the narrative voice by holding a scene up to the light and examining it from as many angles as possible. Memoirs are often written from the first-person point of view, but what happens when we expand those boundaries and tell the story from a different vantage point? What new truths can be discovered about a scene we thought we understood?
