Through close readings and discussions we will unravel unusual memoir structures. In weekly workshops, we will encourage experimentation, risk-taking, and convention-breaking. Prompts will invite novices to develop new ideas and challenge seasoned writers to slip the restraints of dull drafts. By defying expectations, we will create writing that crackles with surprise. When we discover how innovative authors such as Danilo Kis, Vladimir Nabokov, and Marie NDiaye address questions of history, honesty, and memory, we will become daring memoirists.
*Please note this course was incorrectly titled A Structure for Your Story in the print catalog.
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.
