Mapping Your Memoir

How do you write about the people in your life as complex, believable characters in memoir and essays?

Whether it’s fiction or nonfiction, the heart of every story is character. While you’re the hero of your own story, it’s not just about you. Your life is populated by an array of people who are messy, complicated, and fully realized. We’ll explore how to bring them to life on the page to create deep, memorable, vivid characters in this four-week summer master class.
