Our advanced memoir workshop is back! Based on feedback from our pilot class, we have increased the number of class sessions (twice a month) to make the workshop even more effective.
If you have a book-length memoir in progress, this workshop is designed to advance your knowledge of the genre, make significant progress on your manuscript and gain momentum toward its completion in the community of a small, committed circle of peers. Includes instruction; in-class writing; homework assignments; craft discussions; and the exchange of thorough, respectful critique. Class meets remotely online via Zoom twice a month; participants should plan to attend all twelve sessions.
This is an advanced workshop limited to eight students. To apply, submit a one-page overview of your project and a five-page sample of writing from your memoir in progress (double-spaced, 12-point font).
