|Begin (or Continue!) a Memoir: Inventing Your Life on the Page
Memoir is an agile form of writing; it can focus on any particular time, event or story from your life. We'll use engaging, active writing exercises to get each writer launched into the story they most long to tell, and will work to build a set of writing skills that will keep the story moving long after class is complete. Learn to use metaphor, sensory description and careful editing of details in a way that brings your unique voice alive on the page. Recover, preserve and share an important story that only you can tell— for your family, the wider reading community, or yourself.
