Each 8-week term, students continue to work on their memoir by picking a previously used Writers Studio model of their choice and bringing 2 new pages per week following the same model. The first week is dedicated to choosing the model and defining the narrative techniques and persona narrator that will be used, deepening each student’s understanding of the craft to be explored for the following seven weeks.

By the end of the 8 weeks, each student can either have 14 pages of completed prose (or less should they choose to bring in revisions based on the received feedback).

Open only to students who have completed four Memoir Classes or Level 2. Places in the class are awarded by the instructor on a case-by-case basis.
