Creative nonfiction is that rare genre that both allows writers to express themselves and offers the chance for mere mortals to earn real money from their writing—up to a dollar per word or more, depending on the market. In this seminar, we’ll look at published examples of short memoir pieces (800 words or less) and start to create our own through writing exercises and prompts. We’ll also discuss potential markets where we can try to sell our mini-memoirs.
