Truth or Fiction [Susan Meyers]
Introductory | Writing about real life can be tricky. You may not remember all the details–or, you may want to change information to protect people or make a story more interesting. But how much is okay to change? This class explores memoir and autobiographical fiction to examine how “true” your life stories should be. We’ll consult writers like Patricia Hampl, David Sedaris, Maxine Hong Kingston, and Carmen Maria Machado; and we’ll use writing exercises to help you begin your own personal writing project.
