One-Day Memoir Workshop
For this intensive day of workshopping, each student will bring in multiple copies of a complete memoir piece (five pages double-spaced) or a self-contained excerpt from a larger project. We will spend the day workshopping this writing. With guidance from the instructor, the class will discuss the pieces, exploring their meanings, praising their successes, and offering constructive suggestions for improvement.
