This workshop will help you understand how to turn your own experiences into riveting stories with universal themes. Through craft talks, class discussion, homework assignments, and close readings of published work, the class will introduce you to the possibilities and pitfalls of personal narrative. We’ll cover such concepts as the nature of truth and memory, how to develop the first-person narrator, showing v. telling, and how to mine your experience for deeper meaning. Because each class is tailored toward the needs of the group, assignments and topics will vary.
