4-Week: Lyric Essay and Hybrid Nonfiction

$215.00 Members
$240.00 Non-members

In this course, we’ll reconfigure the traditional structure of the lyrical/personal essay and memoir. By reading works by Jamaica Kincaid, Lidia Yuknavitch, Steven Dunn, and others we’ll expand our exposure to the broad field of personal/lyric essay and memoir with an emphasis on structure, voice, integrating research, and other aspects of artful nonfiction storytelling. This class is well-suited for intermediate or advanced writers who are engaged in writing personal essays or memoir. Each class will consist of weekly reading discussions, in-class writing exercises, and craft talks and discussion. Because each class is tailored to the needs of the group, assignments, and topics will vary.
