This class will consider the variety of possible structures for your memoir. Our goal will be to match content with form to discover the most compelling way to tell your story. We will analyze some successful memoirs and use writing exercises to experiment with shaping or re-shaping your work-in-progress. Discovering a form that works for your story not only brings out the meaning of what you have written so far, but also helps you see what remains to be written. Reading and writing both in-class and outside class are required. For intermediate/advanced levels.
