From History to Story: Writing Your Life [Susan Meyers]

Introductory / Intermediate | You’ve got a life story to tell, but how can you turn “history” into a “story”? What should you include? And what should you leave out? Moreover, how can you make your memories interesting to a reader? This class explores storytelling techniques from memoir to autobiographical fiction to help you bring your story to life. We’ll consult writers like Tim O’Brien, Maxine Hong Kingston, and David Sedaris; and we’ll use writing exercises to help you launch your own writing project.
