Write Your Memoir

Spring term 2018:  Class Canceled


Instructor: Victoria Osborne

Don’t let the story of what you’ve done, felt, and experienced get lost in the busy pace of life. This is your chance to tell it all or just some of it. Each week you put a little more down, then share that with the class, and those pieces add up to your book. Write your autobiography, memoirs, family stories, personal experiences or regional histories. Learn to self-publish in small print runs. Consists of nine sessions. 

Class plan:

1st week, what is a memoir and the structure of a scene.

2nd Week, creating your working outline.

3rd Week, organization of scenes and timeline.

4th week. Sharing of your scenes. Those comfortable will read aloud their scenes to share with the class.
