Great writers are said to have a voice, but what does that really mean, and how do you find yours? More than vocabulary, more than stylistic flourishes, your writing voice is the deepest possible expression of who you are, and that creates a resonance with the reader. This is what great memoir writing is meant to achieve. In this intensive workshop, you work toward realizing the themes and structural organization inherent in your memoir-in-progress; receive in-depth evaluation of your work to strengthen and refine your unique voice and narrative style; and have instilled within you a love of language and deep contemplation. You also develop editing techniques and analytical reading skills, nurture professional contacts, and foster a community of like-minded peers.

Prerequisite: 1 previous memoir-writing course.
