The Memoir Studio

This studio workshop is for writers actively drafting or revising a full-length memoir manuscript. Each class will include craft discussions on issues pertinent to each student’s work, such as structure, scene vs exposition, voice, and finding the story beneath the story. We will explore various narrative forms and craft techniques through the analysis of assigned weekly reading, as well as consider the real-world consequences and ethics of writing and publishing true-to-life stories. The majority of each class will be dedicated to workshopping submitted writing and students should expect to present a new or revised piece each class as well as provide thoughtful and informed critiques for fellow classmates. This class is an opportunity to work through problems that have arisen with an existing manuscript. Writers will leave this class armed with the tools to transform previous and new work into a clear and compelling memoir of any length.
