According to Nancy Thayer, “It’s never too late…in life or in fiction…to revise.” Given honest and constructive feedback, students will learn to “cut and prune” stories as they organize a kaleidoscope of random recollections. Memoir writings and supportive ways to deliver and receive constructive criticism will be discussed. Each participant will bring a completed story to class. The group will respond to the story, discussing memorable “hot spots” as well as places that could be stronger, funnier or more real. No prior writing experience is necessary, just the desire to strengthen the impact of your writing.
