Got life experience? A story that you are burning to tell? Memories that yearn to be given voice – that need to be heard? In this course, we will distinguish between memoir and autobiography and cover the myriad forms that memoir may take. Through in-class writing exercises and discussion of both your life and published memoirs, we will work to form a plan for your book’s structure and then write and workshop chapter one in a constructive and supportive environment. Written feedback included. “Creative Nonfiction in a Nutshell” or equivalent introductory knowledge of creative nonfiction is recommended for enrollment.
