Memoir and Its Potential Impact

All Levels | Does your memoir potentially impact those around you (family, friends, colleagues, community)? Does it involve digging at tough issues? We’ll tackle how writing memoir affects who appears on the page, including self. We’ll generate material, and read and discuss published work. Students will have opportunity to receive instructor feedback on their writing. We’ll examine structure (from overarching whole to building blocks of sentences), scene, dialogue, creating an image pattern, infusion and management of tension, and other important elements of craft.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
