The blank page can be the most daunting obstacle in writing. In this course, aspiring writers will assemble a “starter kit” for approaching the blank page by developing constructive ways to think about the writing process as a whole. While subsequent courses in this series will focus on the mechanics of good writing, this course offers ways to think about the writer’s relationship to her material, and ultimately develop a writing style that is uniquely her own.

TOP REVIEWS FROM MEMOIR AND PERSONAL ESSAY: MANAGING YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE READER
I really enjoyed this course. It's frustrating if you aren't on the same schedule as several others though, making it difficult to review others' work and have them review yours.
I'm still not fully sure I understand 'frame' but it still got me thinking. An excellent course with excellent prompts.
This was really a fun course. I feel much more confident that I can write an interesting memoir!
I enjoyed this course and found it very valuable. I thought some of the assignments were confusing and could be clarified.
