Online Class | 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. This course takes place online through our partners at Wet Ink, and classes can be done at your own pace throughout the week.
