Memoir as Collage

We will explore memoirs that are told in a nonlinear, lyrical, fragmented fashion. Each week, we will read excerpts from writers such as Lidia Yuknavitch, Abigail Thomas, Nick Flynn, and Sarah Manguso, examining how they weave together their memories, themes, metaphors, and multiple point of views into a rich, complex whole. We will also explore the potential theme(s) and structures that exist in our own memoirs-in-progress by utilizing in-class freewriting, discussion, and a respectful workshopping process.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through the end of 2020.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
