The Memoir class was a five week class with seven other writers. Each week we were given a prompt and expected to write and then read a 500 word memoir to the class. We got a mini-critique for the piece we wrote.
We also presented one up to 4000 word memoir for a critique by the teacher and the class.
It was a good class and it is surprising how quickly you get to know the others in the class based upon what they share in their writing.
Here is a piece I wrote when asked to write about an event that I had little memory of, “Blind Pig”
