What is the Memoir Showcase?   

2017 Theme:  Where I Come From

Join us:  for a night of rich, dramatic & funny stories filled with surprising life experiences that show us our colletive humanity.   Experience life lived growing up in a traveling carnival, life as the daughter of a sheriff with a jail attached to your home or taking your parents to court and successfully emancipating at age sixteen.  

How it works:  Hundreds of short memoir pieces were submitted to the 2017 Memoir Showcase competition.  The top eleven pieces were selected as winning entries.

These winning entries are professionally directed and acted out on stage at North Coast Repertory in front of a live audience.  

The San Diego Memoir Showcase is produced by San Diego Writers Ink and the San Diego Memoir Association, in association with producers Marni Freedman and Tracy Jones.

One Night. Real Stories. Can’t Make This Stuff Up.
