Life Becomes Art: Form in the Essay & Memoir

When: Sat., March 19, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. 2016

Life is a mass of details and distractions. Personal essays and memoirs are selections and arrangements of those details. Writing from memory involves leaving out the irrelevant or distracting and focusing on the essential. Explore what form is, then build it with blocks of carefully selected details. Read two short essays and write short pieces to generate new work.
