Memoir Writing Class

Instructor: Jessica Handler


We write memoir because we’re curious – about ourselves, our pasts, and how we fit into the world (and how the world fits us.) Participants will develop or polish their memoir in progress through weekly craft talks, writing exercises, and guided discussions of their work and that of their peers in a supportive, technique-focused, and casual environment.   

Class limit is 12.
