Memoir & More - New Class in Wilmington!

I love teaching (almost) as much as writing (sometimes more!), so I'm happy to announce my next class, just in time to get summer rolling. 

Memoir and More: Writing Literary Nonfiction

Pomegranate Books, 4418 Park Ave, Wilmington, NC
(910) 452-1107

4 Saturdays - June 7, 14, 21, 28 ~~ 1-3 p.m.
(Limit 8 students) Class fee -- $75.

This class will focus on nonfiction writing: memoir, biography, personal essay, lyric essay. The names don't matter - this is nonfiction that tells a story or reflects on experience through language. This very broad genre includes writing about travel, nature, environment, cultures, people, and much more. Life!

We will spend some time each week looking at a selected piece of nonfiction writing with an eye to surveying the wide range of styles, subjects, and techniques available to us. Students who care to will have the opportunity to share work and receive feedback. (No one is required to share.) We will also spend some time on deep revision, which is where the real work - and fun! - of writing unfolds.

This four-week class offers a safe environment in which generate ideas, to write, to receive feedback from your peers and the instructor, and to read and respond to your classmates’ work. 

There is no required reading, but I will make suggestions, because writers read.  
If you are interested, please call or visit Pomegranate Books to register; seats are limited, and payment in full is required to hold your place. Feel free to tell others who may be interested.
Have a creative May!
