Want to write an essay, collection of true stories or full memoir? It’s called creative nonfiction because it’s telling a true story in a creative, intriguing way that evokes emotion.


You may never have walked on the moon, or saved a life, or won the Nobel Peace Prize, but you can write about your life in a way others will find interesting. Learn about the importance of emotional truth in your story and “characters” who influenced your life and how to craft it all into a complete memoir, or collection of true stories.


This course will help you:

  • Convey your true-life experiences in ways that bring your personal stories to life on the page.
  • Still be creative in your prose while staying true to the real people and story in your life.
  • Weave the elements of fiction such as, plot, voice, narrative description/details, dialogue, and character development, through your story to create a successful memoir.
  • How to write about the difficult events of your life with honesty and compassion.
