Memoir and Its Potential Impact

Does your memoir potentially impact those around you (family, friends, colleagues, community)? Does it involve digging at some tough issues? We’ll tackle how writing memoir affects those who appear on the page, including the self. We’ll generate material and read and discuss published work; also, students will have the opportunity to receive instructor critique on their writing. In addition, we’ll examine structure, from the overarching whole to the very building blocks of sentences, working on scene, dialogue, creating an image pattern, the infusion and management of tension, and other important elements of craft.

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.
