Memoir Techniques: Writing the Things I Don’t Remember
Every writer of memoir worries about their gaps in memory. In this class, we'll discuss four specific techniques for writing the things you don't remember, and read published examples of how different authors handle this problem in their work. We'll practice applying the techniques—Filling in the gaps, Telling all the versions, Excavating, and Forgetting as the story—to our own works-in-progress.
