Memoir as Collage

Intermediate. We will explore personal narratives that are told in a lyrical, fragmented, nonlinear fashion. Each week we will read excerpts from writers such as Pam Houston, Nick Flynn, and Claudia Rankine, examining how they weave together memories, themes, metaphors, genres, and points of view into a rich, complex whole. We will also explore the theme(s) and structure(s) that exist within our own memoirs-in-progress, utilizing in-class free-writes, discussion, and an opportunity to workshop/receive feedback on your work.
