IN-PERSON: Flash Memoir: Weaving Truth and Art   

**This class will be taught In-Person**

**Note that this class will not meet on June 19 as the University recognizes Juneteenth, nor July 3rd for the 4th of July holiday.**

Looking back on turning points, highlights and lowlights of our lives can be both pleasurable and illuminating for anyone, and the process can result in arresting, evocative, publishable pieces. Our class will focus on flash memoir, brief true stories under 2,000 words. Each week we’ll examine the story-telling building blocks vital for memoir: vivid characters and settings, careful narrative pacing, lucid language, insightful musing. We’ll read and discuss a variety of published memoirs from across the lifespan and each week we’ll embark on writing a new flash piece of our own. We’ll also discuss publication opportunities and best practices for submitting.


This class is not available at this time.
