Essayist Joan Didion wrote famously, “We tell ourselves stories in order to live,” and over the course of six weeks, workshop participants will be given tools to inspire and instruct them in writing their own unique life stories. Together we will explore a broad range of stunning examples from the masters of memoir and personal essay, from James Baldwin to Scott Russell Sanders to Cheryl Strayed. Each week we will dedicate class time to generating new pieces, as well as to studying and practicing crucial elements of writing craft—from dialogue, to image, to writing through the senses, which poet/memoirist Mary Karr calls "sacred carnality." Through these weekly craft lessons, and by sharing our work with one another and with the instructor, we will gain new insights into our own creative processes and experiences.
