Class Notes

Special Session TWO WEEKS - June 21 to July 2. Open to all students, not restricted to creative writing literature majors. From the Instructor: An intensive exploration of the memoir genre. We will read creative and craft-oriented autobiographical texts from Augustine to Baldwin to Carmen Maria Machado in order to explore the ways the genre forms and interrogates truth, imagination, and memory. Students will write creative/critical responses to the readings and write their own 7-12 page memoir. During this time period each day there will be individual writing time, small group work, work in pairs, large group discussion and mini-lectures as well as breaks.
