Nine-Month Memoir Intensive

Sept 25, 2021–May 21, 2022
Saturdays, 2:00–4:00 p.m. Pacific Time (29 class meetings)
online via Zoom

$1450

This 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.
