We all have our stories to tell. From the tiniest moments of joy to the days we wish we’d all forget about. Writing about yourself can be the most daunting task out there. And yet, it can also be one of the most liberating forms of writing. Introspection and reflection, diving deep into oneself and revealing even the most intimate moments require courage. In this class, the award-winning writer of the critically acclaimed memoir Lives of Great Men: Living and Loving as an African Gay Man will help you overcome the fear of personal writing and guide you towards working on a memoir (essay-length or book-length). In addition to memoir the tutor will discuss ways to make you archive your general nonfiction goals.
This class is designed to help you get that story out and into the world. The guidance provided will help you discover yourself through the writing process and help you overcome the fear of writing about the self. At whatever point in your personal life or career, this is a great class for when you feel you have that story you need to tell.
