SUNDAYS, APR. 18 — MAY 23 | Whether you have a manuscript or just the bones of one, this workshop encourages students to shape, write, and polish their memoir and hybrid/researched memoir book projects. Expect a vigorous discussion of structure, arc, and theme, help with constructing chapter outlines, guidance for generating new material, and weekly workshopping. After six weeks, you’ll walk away with either a completed draft—or, at very least, the road map to arrive at one.
This class will meet on Zoom. Registered students, please contact the instructor directly for details.
