8-Week: Intermediate Memoir and Personal Essay

Intermediate Memoir and Personal Essay

For writers who have completed Intro to Personal Narrative, are engaged in writing personal essays or memoir, and desire feedback on their ongoing projects. Readings each week will expand the class's exposure to the broad field of personal essay and memoir writing with emphasis on structure, voice, integrating research, and other aspects of artful nonfiction storytelling. Class will consist of weekly reading discussions, in-class writing exercises, craft talks, and guided workshop by peers. We'll write to understand our experiences in the world, to explore our perceptions, and to share our common humanity through narrative and reflection.

Because each class is tailored toward the needs of the group, assignments and topics will vary. Prepare to be surprised.

Please Note: This course will skip the week of Thanksgiving.
