Writing Memoir Inside a List With Grief On the Side: Instructor Gail Hosking

Writing Memoir Inside a List With Grief On the Side: Instructor Gail Hosking In-Person

Memoir can be written in many forms to captivate experience. Though the list essay is a contemporary style, it is not without antecedents, going back to 10th century Japan in “Pillow Talk.” In this class we will explore narrative, memory and reflections inside this form. This structural design will help us get a grip on our material and see how it all fits together. In this systematic narrative form we can find the personal and universal, the macro and the micro, the past and the present, the situation and the story.
