It’s Time to Write Your Story
Class Description: Memoirs are written to be read. In order to write interesting memoirs, the class will approach it as creative writing, not just informational or explanatory writing. You will learn techniques to enliven the information you want to convey. We will practice some writing skills in class and reinforce the lesson with small homework assignments. The course will concentrate on Language, Clarity, Imagery, Characterization, Dialogue, Detail, Contrast, Tone, Accuracy, Theme, and Point-of-view. It is a fun class, sometimes life-changing. You have a story and the main character is you. Your journey through life is valuable and worth preserving. Your thoughts and experiences are treasures.
