Intermediate/Advanced. The challenge for the nonfiction writer is how to ignite real people from real life onto the page—not the least of which is you, the narrator. Without voice, vulnerability, and veracity, your fabulous memoir or essay cannot catch fire. This class will help you deepen characters, make scenes to frame them, and discover which “you” is actually telling your story.
