Abstract

Life writing is frequently considered as a private act of composition, and one that often involves a critical reflection of one’s own life and that of the others. What are the benefits and challenges if students are asked to participate in a collaborative life writing project that aims to capture, explore and reflect upon the relationship between personal life history, memory and place? This short paper will draw upon my experience of including a creative nonfictional group project surrounding the theme of memory and place in a life writing course for undergraduate students.
