Have you been wanting to research, investigate, then write about events, circumstances, or stories about your family or people close to you, stories that you believe will make for good reading? Life/memoir writing will provide you with everything you need to shape your stories into a readable, accessible literary work.
It can also be about facing yourself, not as a dry memoir or as chapters in self-justification, but as a journey in self-exploration, a self-exploration that can be exhilarating as well as confronting.
You will learn to recognize what is significant in stories, how to bring these stories to life, and how to craft a narrative that will hold the readers interest. You get assignments that will guide you through the writing process and give you the basic skills you need to create a story.
