Course Description:

As we move through our lives, many of us feel compelled to write about our life, family,  friends–for ourselves, for others.  In this course, we will write, read about and discuss memoir and autobiography, journal writing, the writing process, self intimacy and women’s lives.  We will experiment with various approaches and exercises, identify themes, share our stories and create writing from our lives.  We will create a nurturing, explorative and supportive environment. Emphasis will be on writing as a means of self discovery, creativity, documentation and empowerment.
