The Advanced Memoir & Creative Nonfiction Workshop

In this advanced workshop, experienced students working on personal essays and memoir chapters will receive guidance, support, and feedback. We’ll continue to shape experiences and their meanings on the page; discuss higher-level elements of craft and structures; and create strategies for revision. We’ll also use prompts, exercises, and discussions based on readings by notable authors, to generate new scenes and stories. Each member of the group will have at least two to three opportunities to be critiqued during the session. New members must receive pre-approval to register from the teacher.

Please note: This class is an online class. To participate, students must have a stable internet connection with a computer or device with a webcam and microphone.
