Memoir Writing

IMPORTANT NOTICE: This is traditionally a face-to-face classroom training program, but the April/May session will be held online in response to UNH's current recommendations for distance learning due to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Everyone has at least one story to tell, and this workshop will help you learn how to put your stories down on paper.

Using the techniques of creative non-fiction, we will explore the concepts of narrative, dialogue, and description in crafting true stories about yourself.

The workshop will use readings, writing exercises, and peer reviewing to help develop the skills you need to take the reader where you have been via compelling, vivid story telling.
