Mini-Memoirs for Podcast, Radio, or Reading Aloud

All Levels. Like Bach’s cantata cycles, Monet’s haystack paintings, or Rilke’s meditative Book of Hours, the mini-memoirs generated in this class will stand alone and/or work collectively. We’ll discover how limitation can be liberating, explore why form is crucial, and learn how to infuse your language with music. Each story will feed the next. You will leave this class with your own podcast and a suite of mini-memoirs—a small book of hours.
