Event description
Write your memoir, with author Mary Swander! Create a polished chapter, from the opening paragraph and overarching idea to the final line.

About this Event

It's time to write a polished chapter of your memoir.

Participants will write at least one sample chapter of their memoirs, polishing the piece from the opening paragraph to the final line. They will create an alluring attack that raises dramatic questions and establishes the narrator’s voice, weaving together the theme and metaphor of the book. The sample chapters will balance scene and summary, and make smooth transitions, moving back and forth in space and time. Emphasis will be placed on the overarching idea of the chapter as well as the individual sentences themselves.

We will have four sessions in this Tuesday series, 10am to noon Central Standard Time. Each session will build upon the past class, to lead towards the writing of a book-length manuscript.

This class is taught by Mary Swander, award-winning and nationally-acclaimed author, and is cosponsored by AgArts.

Session 1. Tuesday, January 5, 2021.10am-noon CST.

Session 2. Tuesday, January 12, 10am-noon.

Session 3. Tuesday, January 19, 10am-noon.

Session 4. Tuesday, January 26, 10am-noon.
