Jumpstart Your Memoir

This class is for anyone who always has wanted to write a memoir but can’t quite get things rolling, or is stuck in a rut. When writing the story of your life, where do you begin? Which parts do you keep and which do you leave out? How do you make the end product publishable? This course covers the fundamentals of memoir writing, including voice and point of view, while also discussing building conflict and shaping raw experience so it coheres into a satisfying narrative structure. At the same time, major emphasis is placed on helping you to generate a solid memoir premise, find an angle of approach, and choose a jumping-off point.
