52-2824 Creative Nonfiction: Writing and Drawing the Graphic Memoir


The course will focus on writing memoir, how to select the most meaningful memories, and how to determine the focus and structure of either a series of memories or a particular time period and/or event in one’s life, and how to develop the story. While the emphasis will be on writing, the course will also explore the connection of writing to drawing and how one can enhance the other, composition (how the images and language are placed in panels or pages), as well as the other decisions that go into creating a visual memoir, such as typography. Students will also read and discuss published graphic memoirs.
