Do you have a memoir manuscript started that you’re ready to discuss and critique in a workshop? The first class we’ll focus entirely on the craft of writing and setting workshop critique guidelines. In the following classes, we will dedicate a full hour to each student’s submission and spend the additional time deepening our craft discussion based on the submissions. Students will submit 1,500 words (about 6 pages double spaced) and an outline (no more than 5 pages double-spaced) after the first class. Each student will be expected to write at least one page double-spaced in response to the submissions following guidelines. Each writer will receive this feedback and additional feedback from the instructor.
1. Have taken a memoir writing workshop and/or had creative non-fiction prose published.
2. Have 1,500 words and a detailed outline from a memoir manuscript ready to submit for feedback.
