Beginning Fiction/Memoir

Instructor: Barbara Cronie

Start writing “the great American novel!” Or collect your memories and organize them to produce that memoir you already started! Learn the differences and similarities in today’s fiction and memoir through lectures, discussions, and short writing assignments. Methods on how to improve your writing process include: freewriting, rewriting, editing, keeping a journal, creating effective dialogue, and organizing the book. Emphasis is on choosing a writing project to develop in a critique group the next term. Your project can be a new idea, or you may bring in “a work in progress.” In the workshop part of the course, you will select writings to read aloud for constructive criticism. This feedback proves to be invaluable for each writer.
