ENGL 4558 Advanced Creative Nonfiction: Writing the Other/Writing the Self (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

Memoir writing is one of the most popular forms of creative writing today. It offers an opportunity to make sense of a thousand shards of memory and make of them a story which no one knows better than yourself. It's a chance to make sense of family, friends, adversaries, teachers, coaches, and fellow travelers on the journey, and to see them within a larger cultural and historical context. We'll look at childhood and adult relationships and the problematics of abuse, loss, desolation, and death, as well as the possibilities for growth and renewal.
