Writing Your Memoir

At the heart of memoir writing is the idea that each of us has an individual, meaningful story that can be told through a process that involves remembering, reimagining, and recording the past. Work on developing a style that yields an authentic voice, thereby elevating personal experience into compelling prose. Learn how to bring focus and clarity to a memoir through writing exercises, analysis of published memoirs, and guidance—along with discussions of plot, structure, characterization, description, dialogue, and point of view.
