Transformative life writing invites the writer to pinpoint key moments of change and explore the meaning of their experiences. This mini-course was designed to help new, emerging, and experienced writers spark new stories and maintain momentum with their life writing projects long-term.
Writers will gain a deeper understanding of the writing process and learn a unique approach to life stories that will help them draft their best work. We'll explore the writer in relation to self, family, friendships, culture, nature, and the world with a new open-ended theme each week.
Writers will create their own assignments each week, and are encouraged to journal as both a pre-writing and reflective exercise, take inspiration from our selection of exemplary readings, and connect with our warm online community to share ideas and ask questions.
