In this workshop participants will read and share memoir, personal essay, satire, and humor writing while developing techniques in point of view, dialogue, language, scene creation, and more. Writers will produce a portfolio including revised work and annotated studies of master works by Maya Angelou, Colin Nissan, David Foster Wallace, and Zadie Smith, among others.
