ONLINE COURSE! Memoir full-manuscript consultation with Nancy Owen Nelson: October 1, 2016 -January 1, 2017 (Register by October so that you'll have four months to work with Nelson). The class can be either online, face-to-face, or a combination. The class $150 for members. $200 for nonmembers (join as a member for one year). This is for writers who have a full or almost complete manuscript (up to 200 pages) and want to work with a published author on a holistic view of her/his work. (Longer manuscripts will be negotiated). We may read segments from well-known memoir writers and discuss what shapes the personal story into art. Your instructor will provide constructive feedback on your work. Writers should feel at ease with MS Word and the editing mode. It will be important to pace the interactions so that the work can be completed in the four-month period. This course is available from October 1, 2016 to January 1, 2017. You can expect an interaction with the instructor for two hours a week.
