Introductory / Intermediate | Whether you’re writing a memoir, a long essay, or flash nonfiction, this class is for you. We’ll read and discuss examples of autobiographical literature, discuss elements of craft (i.e. tension, chronology, vivid description, point-of-view), and celebrate the artistic possibilities of writing one’s life. Authors will include Jeanette Winterson, Naomi Shihab Nye, Jo Ann Beard, and Jesse Stuart. With in-class writing exercises and instructor guidance, you’ll find a structure for your narratives and a conduit for your imagination.
