THE ART OF WRITING MEMOIR Finding the Past in the Present

by | Read by Natalie Goldberg

Contemporary Culture • 3.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Author and writing coach Natalie Goldberg delivers an interactive presentation on the art of writing a memoir. The material was recorded live at a weekend seminar in Taos, New Mexico, and one is acutely aware of Goldberg’s contemplative teaching style and the class's reaction to her. Although the listener learns practical lessons about "cracking open structure to release energy," the most exquisite gift is hearing some of the students' assigned compositions. They are profoundly and touchingly from the heart. This audiobook is ideally suited for listening at home, where the listener can participate in the brief creative writing assignments, meditations, and "slow walks."
