Course Description

Mine life experiences and transform raw material for a memoir, work of fiction, or prose poetry. Discover your voice and stimulate your creativity. Develop strategies to shape your story, achieve clarity and hone the craft of nuanced language. Acquire skills to render complex characters, distill believable dialogue and incorporate sensory detail. Like contemporary art that breaks down boundaries between art and life, experiment with points of view and tense, invent and reinvent from memory. This dynamic course focuses on the art of compelling narrative. Finished works may be a short story, chapters of a memoir or novel, a collection of prose poems, or hybrid.

Notes:
- Through weekly Zoom meetings, students will work under the guidance of instructor expertise to achieve their work in a virtual studio environment. In addition, students take part in select course activities at their own time; course content will be posted on a weekly basis based on the scheduled meeting date.
