Hosted by Sarah Heston

Nonfiction workshops and scholarship focuses on writing ‘the self,’ but this model often excludes influential works by writers who women. In this course we will read some canonical nonfiction work from 3rd C. A.D. to the present that shows women’s important contribution to co-writing memoir as a means to disrupt established power structures. Our discussions will focus on themes of literacy, martyrdom, slavery, feminisms, spirituality, and the narrative structures co-struggle works take on. This background will lead us to some writing exercises of our own. You will leave this workshop with a sense of the history, themes, accomplishments, and failures of women’s co-written memoirs of struggle, and with the start to a piece of writing that you can add to this incredibly rich tradition. You might wish to purchase texts not available online rather than loan from the library, which shouldn’t be more than $20-30. I will make copies available to students to borrow.
