Online Class | The Alchemy of Memory [Carolyne Wright]
VIDEO: This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom).
All Levels | In this class, we will explore what Honor Moore calls “the mercurial nature of memory.” First we will read essays, excerpts from recent memoirs, and lyric narratives that interrogate, embellish, assemble, and reassemble past experience. Then we’ll enter our own minds’ alternative dimensions and summon images and narratives. Through this creative alchemy, we will turn memories, observations, and insights — drawn from life experiences, journal entries, family history, and our reflections — into story.
