About the Class
In this writing and discussion-intensive course, students will explore how their personal stories relate to current issues in the national narrative on anything from global warming, mental health, parenting, social justice, prison reform, and more, much more. As our country evolves around us, so too do our voices and the intimate trajectories we take in response to social changes. Bring your voice and your stories to the group.
Strangely, a good memoir is not about the author, instead a good memoir is the writer's opportunity to use their own life to provide a gift to the reader.
