The Inner Journey of Writing Memoir

TOPIC:  Self-Exposure and Exposure of Others 

Tuesday  SEPTEMBER 10

1 hour, 4 PST/7 EST



How do successful memoirists do it?

• Best-selling author Roxane Gay wrote Hunger, including a traumatic, pivotal, revealing truth she’d kept secret from her parents until publication.

• In The Glass Castle, Jeannette Walls recounted her unconventional youth living with two eccentric and dysfunctional parents. Wells includes a hard-to-shake image of happening upon her mother dumpster-diving while she watches through a taxi cab window on a busy New York street, herself coiffed and dressed for her job at a prominent publishing company. The dumpster scene was a stunning hook to start a memoir that would touch millions.

You can do it too.

In this 1-hour webinar, learn tested methods to manage self-exposure and exposure of others as you write your important story. Find out what successful memoirists have done to overcome fear of exposure and protect the privacy of others included in their story. I’ll tell you about the legalities concerning including people in your memoir and give you tips on how to make it work well for everyone.

A recording will be sent to registered participants, so you can watch later if you can’t be present for the webinar. If you are able to be present you’ll have a chance to get answers to your questions in the Q/A.

This webinar is held on Zoom. All you need is a computer or phone to participate. A link to join at the meeting time will be sent to you on enrollment.
