Is your memoir, essay or non-fiction book better said in the first or third person? What point of view carries your intended emotional impact? How can you best focus and structure your story? How can you make your opening and developing thesis fully engage the reader? Students are asked to bring one page of their work illustrating the problem/question they would like to solve. The class will include time to workshop and receive in-class feedback.
