Problems in Overwhelm [Claire Dederer]
Your life—everyone’s life—is an unending, overwhelming flow of events and feelings and memories and experiences. In this class, we’ll explore strategies for narrowing and selecting our material. Through in-class critique, writing exercises, and studying examples of the form, we’ll also explore building blocks of memoir: scene, character, and dialogue.
