Course: Seminar in Composing Autobiography (EN-345A-1) 

This seminar uses readings, class exercises, and workshop activities to help students begin the process of exploring different versions of writing one's self as a literary text. Issues addressed include becoming the "author" of oneself; autobiography as the "rewriting" of the self; confession and deception as "autobiographical" impulses; the relation between autobiography and fiction. Students compose autobiographical poems or narratives as their final portfolio project. P: EN 143 or permission of the Department Chair. Generally offered every other year. 3 credits
