Guided Autobiography (GAB) is fun, fascinating, and surprising. In a series of weekly sessions, life themes are introduced; priming questions are asked. Memories of events emerge, and in weekly assignments, students write in response. You’ll get some writing tips, but it’s not a creative writing class—it’s about revisiting and responding to episodes in your life.
New GAB classes are convened when eight students sign up. Classes meet in person or via Zoom for six to eight week sessions.
GAB follows the curriculum of the Birren Center for Autobigraphical Studies.
