CourseGraphic Why write our own stories? Memoir writing may help us document our experiences, revisit old memories, remember the people who have made a difference in our lives, and reflect on past times from our present perspective. It can even be a collection of personal essays that are conversational, loosely structured, and that strive toward candor and self-disclosure. Every week we will have an opportunity to present our creative non-fiction to like-minded writers and to give and receive constructive feedback. A list of helpful textbooks, memoirs and writing resources will be provided. Whether beginners or experienced writers, we can help each other tackle the questions of how to organize our writing, what to include and what to leave out, and what style to follow. We will also polish our writing skills by drawing from a wide variety of resources dealing with the genre. If you ever wanted to try your hand at writing compelling, real-life stories or reflective personal essays, this is your chance. Study group size is limited to 12 participants. No class on 05/25/20.
