About this course:

Everyone has a story (and often many stories) to tell, whether your life has been a wild ride or a quiet stroll. This course is designed for those interested in learning more about the similarities and differences between the two forms and how to explore and shape your stories. Through exercises, prompts, and workshop, you begin work on several stories; you may develop some of these into longer pieces, while others may simply get your creative juices flowing. Because both personal essay and memoir call upon the writer to dig deep and hover patiently over the material of memory, this weekend's worth of writing and exploration gives you tools for staying the course long after the actual class has finished.
