On Campus Program

Jump-Start Your Memoir Write It From the Heart


Everyone has a story. Yours is worth telling. Isn’t it about time? 

Join distinguished writer, teacher, and NPR commentator Nancy Slonim Aronie for an on campus program in which she creates a safe and brave place to write. Whether you're brand new to writing or a professional looking to jumpstart your career, make the leap from yearning to writing. Start on that project you've been dreaming about—your memoir, screenplay, poetry, song lyrics, or stories for your grandchildren. 

Through inspiring and empowering discussions, prompts, and tips, learn how to: 

  • Silence the inner critic.
  • Honor your truth.
  • Write in your authentic voice.

Take home tools that help you maintain a rhythm for a sustainable at-home practice.
