From Fiction

Wilmoth Marshall Foreman
FROM MEMORY…not necessarily fact…TO FICTION

We’ll look at the topic of memories as a basis for fictional writings. We will compare what may have really happened— that tiny seed of memory — to the fiction it spawned, and Foreman will use her writings to illustrate points.

If time allows, we’ll list some "memory kernels," then write a factual memory of one of those kernels.

Wilmoth Marshall Foreman is a Columbia native. She has an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College; is a teacher consultant of the West Tennessee Writing Project (affiliate of the National Writing Project); and is on the Tennessee Arts Commission’s roster of Artists in Education as a teacher of writing.

Her first novel, Summer of the Skunks, is on the 2005-06 Volunteer State Book Award Master Reading List; was selected as a 2004 Book of Note by the Tri State [Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey] Young Adult Review Committee; and was a 2006-07 Sunshine State Young Reader's Award Master List Nominee.

Currently and for about 15 years, Wilmoth has written a weekly newspaper column for The Daily Herald in Columbia. A collection of several of those columns has been published recently. Like the column, that book is titled Somewhere Along the Way.
