ENG 304 - Advanced Memoir

This course offers orientation and practice in the fundamentals of narrative autobiographical writing. We focus on the use of memory-key scenes, remembered characters, and evocative seasons of life-as source material for the writing of personal essays and autobiographical stories. We work with prose narrative material only (prose material that tells a story, as opposed to analytical essays or expository articles), and the boundaries between fact and invention in this course will necessarily sometimes blur. Readings will be drawn from the works of contemporary writers prominent in the field, from period journals and diaries, and from texts on memoir as a literary genre.

Prerequisite(s): ENG 202  or permission of the instructor.
Credits: 3

May be repeated for three additional credits with permission of instructor.
