First Meeting of "The Autobiographical Eye" with Beth Alvarado

SOLD OUT. The Autobiographical Eye is an essay-writing course for beginning through advanced writers.  All prose creates an alternative reality for the reader to enter.  This is as true of memoir and the personal essay as it is of fiction.  We will read and imitate the work of several contemporary literary nonfiction writers, studying the ways they use setting, characterization, voice, research, and reflection, as well as various forms, including narrative, meditative, segmented, braided, hybrid . . .  what else?  We'll see. Students will write generative exercises and work toward crafting their own essays.

Tuition: $175.00 + $10.00 course fee = $185.00 total.
