Wrestling with Time in Memoir [Christine Hemp]

All Levels | Where, exactly, are you telling your story from? Since literary memoirs are more circular than sequential, more intuitive than logical, time can trip us up. Reflection, however, (the memoirist’s magic wand) creates a vantage point—not only where you unpack emblematic episodes, but former versions of oneself. With Sven Birkerts’ The Art of Time in Memoir as a guide, we’ll write scenes from the “Now” and the “Then,” giving form and meaning to the past. Prepare to be surprised.
