Getting Personal: Memoir Workshop   NEW!

Celebrities can assume readers of their biographies will be seduced by fame; but when the rest of us write about our personal lives, we need to grab hold of a reader by the powers of our expression, our ideas, and our storytelling charms. Each week, this class will help sculpt your selected memories so that their inherent power can be brought to the page. We'll focus on the crafting of short, concise memoir pieces, with weekly prompts and assignments meant to jump-start your writing. We also welcome students who are starting, or continuing, longer works. Why do certain moments haunt, charm, excite, or sadden us in retrospect? Whether emotional, comical, sensual, or spiritual in nature, what are the moments in your life that make for great stories? Stories will be disseminated via email, and then, read aloud in class.
