Examine the genre of memoir in contemporary literature! We will make a distinction between someone writing their "memoirs" (plural, as in an autobiography of a whole lifetime), and someone writing a memoir (which could encompass a three week period of time). This class is for active writers seeking to explore their own life as a compelling narrative. Students will gain a greater understanding of the genre, boost their writing skills, and practice techniques for taking their writing to the next level. The course will include diverse readings, brief lecture, discussion, writing exercises, and some sharing of work. Take one series or both. RSVP by August 1 for the first series, by September 5 for the second series.
