Memoir is a nonfiction, literary art form that relies heavily on storytelling techniques derived from fiction, and is formed around the memory and observation of the author. Students will survey and work from the memoir canon, including Mary Karr’s The Liars Club, Joan Didion’s The Year of Magical Thinking and others to inform their own writing. Upon completion of the course, students will have the first chapter of their own memoir complete. Creative Writing 1 and 2, is suggested but not required.
