Yukon Nonfiction Festival: Memoir Writing Workshop with Cea Sunrise Person
In this 3-hour workshop, Cea will discuss techniques in effective memoir writing such as finding your creative voice, themes and universal truths (what they are and why they sell memoirs) and elements of storytelling (setting, character development, dialogue, pacing and foreshadowing). She will also present tips to strengthen your writing -- everything from the critical first 50 pages to plot development to increasing tension to smooth transitions to the all-important showing versus telling.

Please note: this workshop is geared for people who have a manuscript-in-progress.

Cea Sunrise Person is the author of two bestselling memoirs, North of Normal and Nearly Normal. Her books chronicle her wilderness childhood and dramatic move into a modeling career at age thirteen. She has made many appearances to speak about her unique life, including a TEDx talk. After living in such cities as New York, Paris, and Milan, Cea now lives in Vancouver with her family.

Date: Saturday November 18, 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.
Location: Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre, Artist's Studio

Presented by First Draft Whitehorse. We thank our sponsors including Arts Fund and Westmark Hotels.
