Nifspeak started as an exercise in writing when I began taking creative writing workshops through UCLA Extension’s Writers Program in 2010.
In 2012 I am wrapping up work on a Certificate in Creative Writing with and Emphasis on Nonfiction. I hope to continue developing my writing style and voice, using this blog as an informal venue to get my communication juices flowing.
Topics covered in these entries may range widely, but my primary interest in creative writing is in the genre of personal essay with a heavy dose of memoir and autobiographical framing. I’m fascinated with how my view of life’s events has changed as I age, and the process of how our memories are triggered and what we do with the results.
