What you'll learn in this nonfiction writing course:

Explore what takes a piece of personal writing "from draft to craft," looking at elements such as character development, dialogue, incorporating sensory detail, writing in scene, and musing. Focus on the importance of taking a story that's true and connecting it, as Cheryl Strayed says, "to the greater, grander truth." 

In addition to workshopping each participant's writing, the workshop leaders will share essays on craft and sample works of successful memoirists. Participants will come away with an appreciation of what makes a memoir stand out and appeal to an audience beyond themselves.
