Our personal stories are a vital part of who we are.
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, students will produce and share original autobiographical work, examine aspects of craft such as voice, structure and narration, and engage in critical conversations around topics such as memory, truth (and “truth”), writing about living people, research and more. In order to gain a better understanding of the elements that contribute to successful storytelling and the medium’s many possibilities, students will also look at a diverse array of published work.
