Odyssey: Writing from Personal Experience

Memories, observations, and analyses are the writer's raw materials. In this course, participants transform their personal experiences into memoirs, humorous social commentaries, and narrative story essays as they read and discuss published writing by established authors. Class sessions introduce techniques for strengthening the writer's voice; selecting details that provide clarity, interest, and meaning; and creating effective essay/story structures. Fiction-writing techniques, such as setting, narrative tension, and character motivation/insight, are put to use. Participants share their writing in a creative, supportive environment.
