4-Week: The Self and the Story—Personal Transformation in Memoir

$205.00 Members
$230.00 Non-members

A successful memoir reveals the narrator’s progress toward self-discovery. The story, the events, and other characters, create the transformation of self—the storyteller whose name is “I.” Through discussion, revision, and creative responses to readings, we will explore the techniques that deepen and change the Self as he or she moves through events and landscapes. We will talk about accessing memories, “going to the mat with yourself” to come up with a psychologically aware narrator, and using time-honored fictional strategies, like time compression, and enhanced descriptions and character portrayals, to turn  life events into stories. Open to writers who have already started a memoir, completed a draft, and personal essayists.
