Memoir: Writing From the Heart – Fall 2022

There is nothing more important than the stories of our lives, the tales of who we are and what we have experienced. No matter how big or small we imagine, our stories make up the human race. There’s no better way to connect us universally than to divulge fearlessly our individuality. Memoir is the art of capturing our memories and vividly, passionately molding them into pieces of literature, pieces of art. We’ll study masters of memoir over the centuries and work to craft our own stories.

Erin Chandler has an M.F.A. in Creative Writing, and her memoir, Junebug Versus Hurricane, has garnered critical praise.

This class is suitable for all levels.
