This course concentrates on the craft of writing the memoir, which includes popular subgenres such as coming of age, spiritual development, addiction/recovery, food writing, travel adventures, accounts of career failure and success, and stories of surviving various kinds of trauma. The primary focus will be on applying fundamentals and techniques of creative nonfiction to the writer’s personal experience. Class discussions will emphasize essential writing skills, techniques for exploring and recording memories, and professional approaches to research.
