As in cooking, the better the ingredients for your recipe, the better the results. The same is true when writing true life stories. This workshop is about learning the ingredients of good memoir--voice, tone, plot, setting, narration or tension--by reading and writing. Participants will read curated selections and learn the craft of nonfiction. You will be expected to develop a piece, participate in thoughtful workshop after reviewing craft and learning workshop protocol, and revise and present your draft. Charlotte Morgan is a longtime journalist and lover of non-fiction writing. She presently teaches Composition and Intro to Fiction at Cleveland State University. She is presently in revisions on two memoirs, Glenville: My Side of Paradise and Judgment in Goshen: A Taxonomy of Ordinary Murder. And in her spare time, she is developing a TV series with her LA writing partner.
