Writing from Your Own Experience *Online & In-Person*

We concentrate on two related genres using the first person. Nonfiction articles such as the “Lives” and “Modern Love” columns in The New York Times and “Connections” in the Boston Globe Sunday Magazine make use of the writer’s own self, though the topic may be an external one. Books such as Intoxicated by My Illness by Anatole Broyard use fiction techniques to tell a story that is nevertheless the writer’s own. We’ll emphasize scenes, dialogue, and the use of pungent and telling detail. Instructor: Mopsy Strange Kennedy
