Advanced Memoir

Limited Enrollment Course
4 units
6-8:30 pm

Jane Brox

This is a course for writers with experience in writing memoir. The first half of each class will focus on voice and style as well as strategies for shaping material; the second half will be run as a workshop. We will examine published memoirs; we will discuss the responsibility of revelation and the challenges of writing one's life, such as drawing the line between fact and fiction. Students should bring copies of previous work (fewer than ten pages) to the first class meeting. Admission to the course will be based on this submission.
