Writing True: Memoir and Memoir-Based Fiction

ID : 85037   
« back to classes page
"What happened is not what matters; what matters is the larger sense the writer is able to make of what happened"  (~Vivian Gornick). How do we arrive at the truth of our stories? For some, the path lies in writing memoir; for others, in writing fiction. Still others find themselves moving back and forth between the two. In this class, members will use fact, memory and imagination to transform life experiences into stories that are emotionally true, whether memoir or fiction. Weekly format provides writing prompts, supportive feedback and critique, as well as discussions of craft and the illusive boundary between fiction and memoir.
