Completing Your Memoir

What prevents you from completing your memoir or long personal essay? Is it a lack of theme? Weak story arc? Unclear ending? We will diagnose the hurdle between you and a complete manuscript. From there, we will discuss ways to overcome those obstacles. Using examples from established writers, we will refresh ourselves on the key aspects of memoir such as pacing, struggle, and epiphanies, in ways that will help you move forward with your own writing.

This class takes place at Good Shepherd Center, 4649 Sunnyside Ave N, Seattle, WA 98105, Room #221.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
