Nabokov said that the true purpose of memoir should be to discern and follow “the thematic designs of one’s life.”
In that spirit, this class attempts to guide students in the quest to discover what story to tell and how to tell it. Class discussions—of work in progress and of weekly exercises written in reponse to excerpts from classic memoirs—explore elements of craft such as character, description, dialogue and pacing. The goal is to help students find their own voices and the written shape of their own truths.
Students are chosen by Wendy Salinger on the basis of a manuscript submission. Applications must be received by Fri, May 12 at 5 pm. Click here for submission requirements.
