8-Week: Intermediate Memoir and Personal Essay

$325.00 Members
$355.00 Non-members

This class is well-suited for writers who have completed Intro to Personal Narrative, are engaged in writing personal essays or memoir, and desire feedback on their ongoing projects. Readings each week will expand the class's exposure to the broad field of personal essay and memoir writing with emphasis on structure, voice, integrating research, and other aspects of artful nonfiction storytelling. Class will consist of weekly reading discussions, in-class writing exercises, craft talks, and guided workshop by peers. Because each class is tailored toward the needs of the group, assignments and topics will vary.
