Having a great story is just the first step to writing a compelling piece of memoir. In this class, explore what takes a piece of personal writing “from draft to craft,” looking at elements such as character development, incorporating sensory detail and writing in scenes. Delmarva Review editor Emily Rich teaches the course “Writing Your Memoir: From Draft to Craft.”
Participants will explore personal writing, examine writing elements such as character development, incorporating sensory detail and writing scenes. In addition to workshopping each others’ writing, those taking the class also read essays on the craft and sample works of successful memoirists.
