To enroll, you must have completed at least one Inprint multi-week workshop in Memoir or Personal Essay.
This is an advanced level, nuts-and-bolts class, a roll-your-sleeves-up-and-sweat class, so come, not for the catharsis some seek through memoir, but to further study the mechanics at the heart of successful writing. We’ll practice applying good fiction techniques to memoir and explore differences between the two, together building your memories into the stories you want to tell.
