This class is designed to help students find the theme or backbone of their memoir and then learn how to write vivid scenes. For those who don’t know where to start, we’ll build a solid foundation. For those who already have some writing, we’ll help with focus and structure. We’ll do writing exercises that reveal theme, learn the five narrative modes, and story structure. We’ll discuss options for how to organize memoirs. The objective is to understand what a memoir is and is not, learn how to tell a story, and get some feedback on whether the scenes written for class are working or not.
