Course Description

We all have a story to tell. Writing about our past and the experiences that have shaped us can be, for many writers, an important rite of passage. For the emerging writer, writing a memoir can be particularly helpful for developing style and technique, finding a voice, and identifying their core values and motivations as a writer.Writing about our past can also help us better understand ourselves and the people who have shaped us. How have our past experiences made us who we are today? Writing a memoir can also invoke difficult emotions. For this reason, the course also covers strategies for self-care and maintaining personal boundaries as a writer. The memoir can also be a deceptively complex genre to navigate; raising questions as it does of author subjectivity, memory, and the ethics of writing about others, including our own family. Indeed, it can challenge the very definitions of ‘truth’ and ‘fiction’.This course will address all these issues, while encouraging the writer to develop, and experiment with, a range of literary techniques and approaches to memoir writing.
