About the Event

The Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow is thrilled to present a memoir writing workshop instructed by Cassandra Clark.  This workshop sold out early in 2020, and Cassandra has graciously offered to return to Dairy Hollow to offer it again.

Cassandra is a highly accomplished author with a diverse literary background.  She has worked as a ghostwriter and collaborator for memoirs and blogs, written screenplays, and was a Comedy Writer/Producer for TV sitcoms including the Emmy-award-winning TV show, “Designing Women.”

The Memoir Writing Workshop will be held on Sunday, May 2, 2021, from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.  The cost for the class is $75 per person. Workshop attendees may reserve a writing suite at the subsidized rate of $75 per night based on availability and single occupancy. This is sure to be a fun and informative afternoon. The workshop is limited to 10 attendees so register early!

Below are quotes from Cassandra’s clients taken from the acknowledgment pages of their memoirs:

Elizabeth (Boo) Maxwell, author of “A Different Bus: Journey of a Long Lost Heart” said Cassandra, “encouraged me to always dig deeper into my soul, past even my own defenses, to reveal (…) healing stories, painful truths and cherished joys.”

I.C.Deal  author of, “DEAL” Adventures of an Entrepreneur,” wrote “I found a delightfully irreverent, deeply intelligent and perceptive, and ferociously witty sitcom writer fresh from Hollywood, who made this journey not only a success but a pleasure.”

Gary J. Fernandes, author of “Thinking Allowed: Personal Essays Along the Way” said Cassandra, “coached me on how to get the most out of my subjects and mentored me to understand that writing a book is an evolving process and not an event.”

Cassandra presently resides in Dallas with her 35 lb. white tomcat Moie; cultivates in a rich inner world with a plethora of curiosities about everything; loves nature, travel, wisdom, humor, kindness, animals, creative arts, music, languages; and can yodel impressively when asked.
