Students will leave the workshop with a better understanding of the strengths and weaknesses in their prose, in addition to learning more about the organizing principle of their memoir, the revision process, and what form best suits their narratives.Lindsay Wong holds a BFA in creative writing from the University of British Columbia and an MFA in literary nonfiction from Columbia University in New York City.
