So You Want to Write Your Story!

Loading Events

You’ve led an interesting life and want to tell some of your stories to others. You’ve read some memoirs and personal essays, and have been stashing some of your own efforts in a notebook somewhere. Now it’s time to pull them out and begin to craft them into a narrative. Come explore with us, through readings and exercises, how to start to turn private words into public. Pre-class assignments will be sent to you a week before class begins.
