In this bilingual/bicultural workshop, we will look at memoir as embellished truth. Looking at authors Domingo Martinez to Joan Didion, we will explore how techniques of fiction are used to craft memoirs that get at the “truth” of experience. You will build your skills through playful exercises designed to help you bring memory alive. The course will include a review of publishing outlets, including social media and blogging.
