Did something happen yesterday, 10 years ago, even 100 years ago, that affected the person you are today? Your life is a tapestry of threads woven together, each thread representing all those who came before you. Are you prepared to look closely at that tapestry and analyze each thread, one at a time? Writing personal essay and/or memoir is a fine place to start.
Personal essays have become a trend again with the advent of blogs and social media. Now is the time to learn this craft.
Victoria Zackheim is the creator and editor of six anthologies, and author of the novel The Bone Weaver.

She is the story developer and writer of the documentary film Tracing Thalidomide: The Frances Kelsey Story (in production), and writer for Where Birds Never Sang: The Story of Ravensbruckand Sachsenhausen Concentration Camps, which aired nationwide on PBS. Her screenplay, Maidstone, based on a 1972 prison escape in Belfast, is in development. Victoria teaches Personal Essay in the UCLA Extension Writers’ Program and is a 2010 San Francisco Library Laureate.
