The Memoir & Creative Nonfiction Workshop: Wednesday Mornings (Now Online)
Please note: This class will now have online meetings. Your teacher will contact you with information on how to join the online classroom. To participate, students must have a stable internet connection with a computer or device with a webcam and microphone.
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.
