Introduction to Memoir Writing  

Class Overview

Start telling your life story! From ideas to notes to messy first drafts to final polish, we'll cover the basics, writing together in class and writing on our own in between.

Sharing will be encouraged, but optional. We will practice the art of supportive, insightful feedback. There will be handouts and/or reading suggestions. You will be expected to write between classes, although there will be no required writing quota.
