Creative Memoir Writing 101

Even if you’ve never wanted to write a memoir, this creative writing series is for you because writing as self-expression is a great way to engage the brain! Writing, whether by hand or typing, is a creative representation of our time on Earth—and what a gift for your friends, heirs and, frankly, to the world to tell your story.

This course features published author Keith Lee Morris, creative writing professor at Clemson University and editor of The South Carolina Review. Keith has a passion for taking real-life events and creating fiction.

Professor Morris’ short stories have been published in New Stories from the South, Tin House, A Public Space, New England Review, and Southern Review, which awarded him its Eudora Welty Prize in fiction. He infuses all his fiction with his real-life experiences and characters.
