This course will cover all elements of the craft of memoir with a special focus on writing vibrant scenes. Students will learn how to pull readers so close to the moment that they feel encapsulated by story. Heighten the artistry of your book by inventing unique image patterns, increasing narrative tension, writing potent characters, rendering vivid setting, and taking new and interesting risks with language. In this workshop, students will have the opportunity to receive feedback from the teacher on their work at least once.
