Workshop Leader: Nicole Miller
This workshop will be dedicated to making your memories live on the page. Excerpts from memoirs and essays by authors such as James Baldwin, Tobias Wolff, Joan Didion, Maggie Nelson, and Lidia Yuknavitch will teach the art of scene-making. Participants will work on chapters of a longer work, or self-contained personal essays which employ elements of fiction in the service of fact: dialogue, character, setting, conflict. There will also be space for self-analysis and observer narrative: for cultivating the voice of objectivity, reflection, and meaning which comments on experience. The workshop format will allow for generating drafts and receiving feedback from the instructor and from peers. Please bring pages to share during the first meeting, and be ready to discuss your memoir project. Note: No meeting February 19.
