ENG 325W - American Stories - Reading and Writing Memoir

3 CR

In this class we will practice the art of reading and the craft of writing life stories, or memoir: works of prose inspired by reflecting upon and shaping one’s experiences and history. We will read memories from a cross-section of voices, and reflect on how they represent the American experience. Each week short writing exercises will be assigned, as well as discussion questions related to the reading. You will also write two pieces of memoir (four to six pages) which will be shared with the class and revised accordingly.

Prerequisite(s): ENG 101 .
