Workshop Leader: Desirée Magney and Emily Rich
Having a great story is just the first step to writing a compelling piece of memoir. In this class, we will explore what takes a piece of personal writing “from draft to craft,” looking at elements such as character development, dialogue, incorporating sensory detail writing in scenes, and musing. We will focus on the importance of taking a story that’s true and connecting it, as Cheryl Strayed says, “to the greater, grander truth.” In addition to workshopping each participant’s writing, we will share essays on craft and sample works of successful memoirists. When the course is over, participants will come away with an appreciation of what makes a memoir stand out and appeal to an audience beyond themselves.
