Writing Memoirs

Presented by: Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications

It’s your story to tell. Not a dry chronological inventory of your life since birth. Not a private entry in your diary. It’s an honest, thought-provoking, emotional, outrageous, humorous, inspirational narrative about an aspect of your life worth sharing. A life-changing obstacle you overcame, perhaps, or a remarkable adventure only you can recount. Whatever the reason, make your story the most compelling you’ll ever write, so it will be the most compelling they’ll every read.  Carolyn Choate, long-time producer at WYCN tv13 Nashua and a memoir “junkie, " will help you master the elements of this best-selling genre that breaks the conventions of autobiography and journaling to create a rare “self-portrait” from the album of personal memory and experience. Class discussions, reading short works from distinguished memoirists (and a few infamous ones) and weekly writing exercises/assignments will have you well on your way to becoming a bona fide writer of memoir.

Joining Carolyn for an evening will be Dan Szczesny, 2016 winner of the NH Literary Award in Non-Fiction for the his memoir the Nepal Chronicles: Marriage, Mountains, and Momos in the Highest Place on Earth. In addition to several popular travel-related memoirs, Dan is a long-time journalist and associate publisher of the Hippo.

This six-week class meets on Wednesdays from 7:00 to 8:30 PM starting on September 12 and ending on October 17.

Date: Wednesday, September 12, 2018 - 7:00pm to Wednesday, October 17, 2018 - 8:30pm
Location: Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications
