8-Week: Intro to Personal Narrative and Memoir


A perfect introduction for anyone who has got a personal story to tell but hasn't had experience crafting essays, personal journalism, or memoirs. This workshop, geared toward new writers of personal narrative, will help you understand how to turn personal experiences into riveting stories with universal themes. 

Through freewrites, class discussion, homework assignments, and close readings of published examples of the craft, the class will introduce you to the possibilities and pitfalls of personal narrative. We’ll cover such concepts as privacy v. publicity, how to develop the first-person narrator, showing v. telling, and how to mine your experience for deeper meaning. Because each class is tailored toward the needs of the group, assignments and topics will vary. Prepare to be surprised.
