About the Event

Since its first boom period in the early 1990s, memoir has become one of the fastest-growing genres in the literary publishing world. The “memoir craze” continues strong today, as veteran and emerging writers alike try their hand at recounting true stories from their lives. In this three-hour workshop, we will study various permutations of the memoir, examining excerpts from multiple acclaimed works of autobiographical nonfiction. We will then apply the lessons we learn from these expert works to our own writing, as we try to represent personal narratives in faithful and compelling ways. A series of generative prompts will help us mine our experience in this endeavor.
