Writers are keepers of memory, and memoir is a powerful way to record life's many stages, joys and experiences. In this workshop, you will learn to use detail and scene to make the past come alive. You will develop voice, and focus not just on events but on the people involved in those events. Through discussion of classic and contemporary published memoirs and critique of personal writing, this class will explore the many ways in which memoir writers can strive for a deeper interpretation of their own lives. Whether your aim is to write informally, as part of a family history for your children and others, or to create a literary work for potential publication, this course will help you write your own truths.
