This is a 90-minute, all-video class open only to students who have taken at least four terms of Memoir and/or by permission from the teacher. There will be no new two-page assignments. Instead, students will work independently and bring in a six-page continuation of a previous assignment twice during the term, with the goal of building up pages toward a manuscript. Three students will present their work and receive verbal feedback each week.
