If you have always wanted to tell your own story—in a memoir, first-person essay, or any other form of autobiographical non-fiction—but felt you lacked the tools or the framework, this is the class for you. We will learn how successful first-person writing is structured to offer the reader a sense of propulsive motion, and is guided by a narrator who is deliberately crafted. We will explore the ways in which language can be used to create tone, so that the emotional freight of your words is as potent as the storytelling. And crucially, we will consider the writer's responsibility to the reader: the importance of being a guide who includes the reader in the sensory, emotional, and intellectual experience you mean to share through your writing.

Brilliant teaching. This course got me organized enough and out of my head. It's improved my writing 1000%!
It was my first class and it was really great! Not intimidating but challenging at the same time. Very positive peers as well.
Thoroughly enjoyable. Developed my writing skills beyond my expectations.
Ariel Levy gives specific examples of books and excerpts to illustrate the learning points. This is very helpful and much appreciated.
