Techniques to help shape your story

Read the course outline (PDF)

Memoirs are stories, and stories have shapes. How do you reduce a lifetime to 300 pages?

In this online short course biographer Frances Wilson will show you how to edit your experiences to build your narrative arc. Learn how to decide where to begin and where to end, whether to look at your life as a whole or explore the impact of a specific experience, year, month, day or even hour.

This course takes place on Zoom and a link will we will email you a joining link the day before. There will be an opportunity to ask Frances questions during a Q&A and have conversations with your fellow participants in virtual breakout rooms.

Live captions will be provided by Stagetext.
