CLASS UPDATE: This class will now take place online, on Zoom. This has been updated from the print catalog.

Spend three days diving into memoir writing. No experience required. The intensive will include lecture, discussion, writing prompts, brainstorming activities designed to get to the heart of your work as a writer, and workshops of participants’ writing. Lecture/discussion topics will include: voice and vision, inviting the reader into the work, narrative arc, thematic drive, collage techniques, scene-building, the publication process, and how to make the most of your writing time. There will be an hour-long lunch break each session.

Most classes are offered at a general and member tuition rates based on instruction hours, with Hugo House members receiving a 10% discount on classes fewer than six sessions.
