MEMOIR WRITING with Karol Nielsen
April 25-May 30, 2018
Wednesdays
6:30-8:30 pm

This workshop will help the memoir writer find and shape a personal narrative whether a short essay or a book-length memoir. Weekly lectures and in-class exercises will illuminate the elements of storytelling used to write a memoir: structure, characterization, plot, description, dialogue, point-of-view, style, voice, and revision. Works developed in my classes have been published as books and essays with honors in The Best American Essays and elsewhere. I believe in a warm, supportive atmosphere where even the most unformed idea can turn into a work of substance and art.

Karol Nielsen worked as a journalist before becoming an author, editor, and writing instructor. She is the author of the memoirs Walking A&P (Mascot Books, 2018) and Black Elephants (Bison Books, 2011), selected as a New and Noteworthy Book by Poets & Writers in 2011 and shortlisted for the William Saroyan International Prize for Writing in nonfiction in 2012. Excerpts fromBlack Elephants were honored as Notable Essays in The Best American Essays  in 2010 and 2005. Her poetry chapbook, This Woman I Thought Id Be (Finishing Line Press, 2012), includes poems from her full collection, selected as a finalist for the Colorado Prize for Poetry in 2007. She works as a freelance manuscript editor and has served as senior editor, nonfiction editor, and contributing editor of Epiphany, an award-winning literary magazine.  She teaches writing workshops at New York University and New York Writers Workshop.
