How to Write Your Life Story: A Memoir Intensive

  • OLLI - UNCA 1 Campus View Road Asheville, NC, 28804 United States (map)

The secret to a good story is not only the ingredients that go into it but also the way in which it’s told. In this six-week writing intensive, we will discuss how to take memories and events from life and turn them into an interesting story by doing the research, organizing the ideas and making writing clear and readable. We’ll explore the creative process with writing exercises, readings and group discussions. We’ll learn what steps to take to get a story published. At the end of the course, participants will design a writing plan complete with goals and a timeline and have the option to create a writing critique group. Each session will build on the previous session, therefore, it will work best for participants that are able to make a commitment to attend all six sessions.
