Online Class | The Hybrid Memoir: Why Not? [Sarah Cannon]
VIDEO: This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom).
All Levels | This generative course investigates and practices a genre-busting form in creative nonfiction. Maybe you have thematic pieces you’re ready to string together, or maybe you enjoy a variety of styles and can’t land on one. Enter the hybrid memoir: a literary collage, assemblage, or mosaic. We’ll look at authors like Joy Harjo, Maggie Nelson, and Sarah Manguso, whose hybrid works blend poetic forms with essay and philosophy. We’ll also look at Northwest authors Rebecca Brown, Joan Fiset, and Kevin Sampsell, who have worked successfully in this form. This course includes a reading list and ways to continue building on your work independently.
