Memoir 2: The Promise of Iceland

Over the past few creative writing classes, I've given some thought to common elements in creative nonfiction and memoir.

Creative Writing 8 takes my first book, The Promise of Iceland (2011), as a specific example. In particular, I aim to illustrate how that book establishes a question early on, and the way in which it functions as both a story of what happened and a representation of how I remember the events it describes.
