“Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both.” Remember that great poem by Robert Frost? He “...took the road less traveled by, and that made all the difference.”

Most of us, sometime ago, have taken a road less traveled by. Where was the road? Where did it go? Can you write it up in a page or so? If you can, you can read it in this workshop—a session on writing short memoirs. If you use Screen Share, you can show it as well. The instructor might read his tiny tale of a tattered trip to Topolobampo, Mexico, just 60 years ago.

Presenter Kenneth D. Weiss writes memoirs, creative non-fiction and poetry, and translates from Spanish to English. His publications include a book of translated poetry, magazine articles and four books on importing and exporting. Ken is an active supporter of the annual book fair in Gaithersburg, Maryland and heads a Creative WritersGroup in that city. He has bachelor’s and master’s degrees, has lived in six countries and traveled to about 80, and speaks three languages.

 

Presented by SSTCi in collaboration with Silver Spring Village.
