The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly [Suzanne Morrison]
The best memoirists delve deeply into their most vulnerable moments, their most humiliating flaws, their gravest regrets—and we love them for it. Memoirs focused exclusively on the sins of others get thrown across the room. We’ll look at how to cultivate the honesty and courage required to dive into our weaknesses. We’ll read and discuss excerpts from great memoirs and do a boatload of generative writing. How do we explore our worst selves without alienating the reader? And, perhaps harder, how do we explore our good sides? Come with an idea for a story or situation you’d like to explore in your writing.
