You may gravitate toward autobiography, memoir, essay, or journaling. You may span decades of family lore or focus on your own life and the people who influenced you or the experiences that gave you skills and wisdom. Your purpose may be to reveal challenges you’ve faced, share knowledge and values, or make people laugh. This class provides resources to strengthen your story and encouragement to develop your own storytelling “voice.” Reading recommendations are offered along with tactics for cultivating memory, working around barriers, and managing the process. Feedback comes from class discussion and via e-mail from the instructor. (A limited enrollment class)

An innate element in human nature compels us to tell stories. And yet, every writer has experienced the wall—the overwhelming details of life, the fear of not having the precise words, and the fear that the precise words will alter one’s life in unexpected ways—these are the unwanted barriers that prevent us from sharing our stories. This class is designed to break through these barriers by providing the impetus for writers to pursue their thoughts, ideas, experiences, and imagination. By exploring the characteristics of a variety of genres, students will have the opportunity to perfect their unique voice and style. Each week participants will engage in reading and writing exercises designed to hone their skills. In addition, students will have the opportunity to share their stories in a receptive environment designed to produce writing confidence. Students will also receive written critiques from the instructor. (If available, please bring an example of your writing to the first session. A limited enrollment class)
