Deciding whether and how to write about family can be more difficult than family relationships themselves. In this class, we’ll look at successful (and not so successful) examples, discuss reasons for and responsibilities involved in the inclusion of family stories in memoir and personal essays, talk about strategies for uncovering the universal in particular family tales, and use writing prompts to create new material. You’ll leave class with a better understanding of “family issues” and enthusiasm for revising your ongoing projects.
