Katy Butler—Straw Into Gold: The Alchemy of Memoir

Writing about loss, death, and traumatic events can be healing. But the books can be a bummer for readers unless the material is alchemized with style and skill. In this workshop, Katy Butler, known for her bestselling memoir Knocking on Heaven's Door: The Path to a Better Way of Death, about caring for her dying parents, will show you how to find the upward arcs in your story and transform the "straw" of ordinary memory into the "gold" of a narrative that can electrify readers. Knocking on Heaven's Door was a major bestseller, named a Notable Book by The New York Times, a Buzz Book by Independent Booksellers Assoc., and one of the year’s Ten Best Memoirs by Publishers Weekly. 

Classes are limited to just 15 students, lasts for three hours, and concludes with a reception for the author.

For each Master Class Mixer, we reserve the right to cancel at any time and issue a full refund or credit to a later class. If you are unable to attend your class, please email info@litquake.org at least seven days prior to receive a refund or credit, minus a $25 service charge.
