Writing workshop: Writing from Memory

What does it mean to "write what you know"? Sometimes, it means writing what you remember. In this one-hour workshop for teen writers at Page 158 Books, participants will learn how to use sensory details to enhance their writing and create evocative scenes based on their own memories.
