A year-long course designed for students hoping to develop or already working on book-length projects.
When we explore our stories by writing memoir, we have the opportunity to understand our experiences more deeply and give others a chance to reflect on theirs. In this course, we will produce and share original autobiographical work. We will discuss how to focus and shape such projects as well as spend time exploring craft elements such as voice, style, and revision.
Through the course, students will share their writing in workshop and receive feedback that considers both the individual submission as well as how it fits into the project, and the writer’s goal, from the instructor and their peers.
Students are chosen by Anya Yurchyshyn on the basis of a manuscript submission. Applications must be received by Friday, September 18 at 5 pm. View the submission guidelines.
