Autobiography, Memoir, or Fiction
Mine life experiences and transform raw material for an autobiography, memoir or piece of fiction. Discover your voice and learn to shape your story while maintaining truth and integrity. Acquire skills to render complex characters, distill believable dialogue and incorporate sensory detail. Like contemporary art that breaks down the boundaries between art and life, experiment with points of view and hybrid forms, invent and reinvent from memory. Develop strategies to show not tell and hone the craft of nuanced language. This dynamic course focuses on the art of compelling narrative. Finished works may be a short story, novella, collection of poems, or chapters of a memoir or novel.
