Memoir Techniques: Writing Great Scenes

All Levels | We’ll read examples from a range of memoirs as we figure out what needs to be in scene versus summary, how to create vivid scenes that don’t bog down, and how to weave in essential backstory.

Check out the rest of the Memoir Techniques series:

Writing the Realization – 11/1

Writing Great Dialogue – 11/15

Writing the Things I Don’t Remember – 12/13

 

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
