Writing Your Memoir with Emily Rapp

Course Number: CRWT 851.A


0 units

Turning your life story into a compelling book isn’t merely recounting your adventures; you must also find an essential truth, some moment that exceeded the bounds of your previous life. We’ll take you down the path from memory to action, finding the story you not only wish to tell, but the story you must tell. Utilizing in-class readings, writing exercises and the critical examination of published work, we’ll move you ever closer to the book you’ve been trying to write. Students will also workshop up to 25 pages of their creative work in class.  Submissions for this workshop are due February 14.  Students will be expected to provide written critiques for their classmates.
