The Memoir & Creative Nonfiction Workshop: Wednesday Mornings

Returning writers and new writers with creative nonfiction or memoir writing experience will actively write and revise their memoirs, personal essays, works of nonfiction, and more. We will address larger questions of form and substance–determining the scope of your memoir or nonfiction work, what story to tell, what to leave out–and will continue discussing craft issues such as writing scenes vs. exposition, dealing with time and flashback, character development, and truth and memory. We will continue studying the craft of writing and how to hone every page, paragraph, sentence, phrase. Each member of the group will have at least two to three opportunities to be critiqued during the session.

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.
