Autobiography, Memoir, or Fiction


From personal life experiences, students uncover material for an autobiographical memoir or piece of fiction. Like contemporary art, which breaks down the boundaries between art and life, this writing course allows students to move between the worlds of fiction and non-fiction. From readings and workshop discussions students generate ideas and learn the craft of writing. Course explores the letter, the personal essay, and philosophy; mining raw material, life experiences, and memory; the art of short fiction. Also covers transforming raw material; writing about family and friends; truth and integrity; inventing and re-inventing from memory; maintaining perspective; point of view; hybrid forms; rendering characters: creating dossiers; listening to dialogue; voice: yours strengthened; description: sensory detail and other strategies; research, information, and publishing questions. This dynamic course focuses on finding each individual's story and voice. Finished works may be a personal essay, a short story, a novella or chapters of a memoir or novel.
