Kick-Starting the Memoir

Introductory / Intermediate | This is a popular class with proven results, aimed at those who want to write a memoir or have begun one and are stalled. Each week requires an essay of 300 words providing essential building blocks for memoir. These essays are read aloud and critiqued in class; they are also critiqued in writing by the instructor. Weekly reading assignments from two helpful guidebooks (Judith Barrington, William Zinsser) provide memoir insights and inspiration. A convivial class atmosphere is encouraged and highly valued.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.

Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
