Course Description

From diaries to autobiographies, confessionals, memoirs, travel-journals and even blogs, life-writing is one of the most ubiquitous and varied genres of contemporary literature. In this module, we will examine the techniques involved in many styles of life-writing, drawing our examples from established classics and recent best-sellers, ranging from literary memoirs to celebrity biographies. Students will gain exposure to a wide array of different writers and forms, and will have the opportunity to produce their own efforts at life-writing, both for in-class exercises and for their assessed work. If you’re interested in telling the story of your own family or that of a famous figure from history, or if you just want to keep a lively, entertaining record of your thoughts and experiences, this module will help you develop the necessary skills.
