The class begins in September, with the goal of finishing a complete draft of a memoir by June. Participants do not need to be published writers; however, they should have some experience with elements of memoir, including character, setting, dialogue and scene, and have a clear project in mind that they will devote nine months to. They should also be comfortable in a workshop setting, giving and receiving criticism on works in progress.
Though it is not a prerequisite, students who have taken “Memoir Boot Camp” or “Advanced Memoir” at Literary Arts should find this class an appropriate next step.
The scholarship position for this class has been filled.
