Radical Memoir [Sonya Lea]

Why radical? This class is for anyone who wants to become effective and uncompromisingly honest in plumbing a story from life. You’ll learn to communicate sorrow, anger, joy, and humor through craft exercises that explore tone, setting, character, dialogue, and metaphor. We’ll consider ways to tell our stories without self-pity or melodrama. You’ll learn to take emotional risks with clarity and to stop defending your reputation. Come write your story in any form: essay, letter, prose poem, manifesto, vignette, list, abecedarian, Wikipedia entry.
