This 4-week course focuses on what memoirists can learn from J.R. Moehringer’s structure, narration, and tightly focused themes as he propels readers through his adolescence and early adulthood with adept observations and vivid language that hold lessons for memoirists of all stripes.

This course includes the following classes:

Class 1: HOW TO CREATE A “STRUCTURAL DREAM” FOR YOUR MEMOIR—what The Tender Bar has to teach us about the power of linear structures and tightly woven themes.

Class 2: THE ROMANCE OF PLACE—how to paint a picture that enchants your reader.

Class 3: CHARACTER/ CHARACTERIZATION—making your reader fall in love with your characters—with all their charms and flaws.

Class 4: NARRATION—using the reflective narrator to write about things a younger version of you did not know or could not have articulated.
