When you read a diary entry, a page from an autobiography or a piece of fiction written in the first person, you can usually tell the difference, but what are the characteristics of the various genres? How does a beginning writer take his written thoughts to the next step, which is communicating with a larger audience?
The focus of this week will be to create and develop a personal story. Beginning writers get help to overcome any prohibitive distance between their self and their narrator.

The course
In this course you will develop a sketch of a personal experience, i.e. a poem, a scribble on the back of a napkin, a diary entry or simply a thought and transform it into an autobiographical piece of writing or fiction that reflects your - the author''s -  own distinct voice.
You get assignments that take you step by step through the writing process. Writing takes place during the course hours, but you might want to do some work in the evening too.

Admission level
