About the Event

About this class:

This is a 7-week virtual class using the Zoom platform.

Tuesdays Sept. 5,12, 19, 26, Oct. 3, 10, 17 - 6-8:00 pm CT

Everyone has a story to tell--but who has the time to write an entire memoir? In this seven week course we will study the art of flash nonfiction, or "micro-memoirs" exploring, among others, The New York Times' "Modern Love" column and Beth Anne Fennelly's "Heating and Cooling." Participants will write their own micro-memoirs and have the opportunity to workshop for feedback.

Instructor bio:

Christine Guaragno is a writer, adjunct professor, and assistant librarian from Pennsylvania. She writes poetry and nonfiction. You can check out her latest project, a collection of poems about motherhood at Stirring: A Literary Collection.

Humanities North Dakota classes and events are funded in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities.


Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this {article, book, exhibition, film, program, database, report, Web resource}, do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities or Humanities North Dakota. However, in an increasingly polarized world, we at Humanities North Dakota believe that being open-minded is necessary to thinking critically and rationally. Therefore our programs and classes reflect our own open-mindedness in the inquiry, seeking, and acquiring of scholars to speak at our events and teach classes for our Public University. To that end, we encourage our participants to join us in stepping outside our comfort zones and considering other perspectives and ideas by being open-minded while attending HND events featuring scholars who hold a variety of opinions, some being opposite of our own held beliefs.
