Introductory / Intermediate | Spend three days diving into the memoir. The intensive will include lecture, discussion, writing prompts, brainstorming activities designed to get to the heart of your work as a writer, and workshops of participants’ writing. Lecture/discussion topics will include: voice and vision, inviting the reader into the work, narrative arc, thematic drive, collage techniques, scene-building, the publication process, and how to make the most of your writing time. There will be an hour-long lunch break each session.
