In this class, we will discuss the essential elements of memoir writing: how to create scenes that move your story forward, use summary and reflection effectively, and narrow your topic and structure your narrative. This class will also include numerous material-generating activities that will help you hone in on the story you need to tell and develop the voice in which to tell it.
This class can be taken individually but would pair well with Map Out Your Memoir.
