FROM TRUTH TO ART:
THE CRAFT OF MEMOIR WRITING
This 6-week class teaches the important essentials of writing memoir and gives you a chance to practice them, with or without feedback on your writing (see below). By the end of six weeks you can have a book planned and a portion of the first draft written. Your book will have an identified theme, focus, narrative arc, meaningful takeaway and relatability for readers.
Choose your start date. The online memoir class begins the first Monday of any month and continues for 6 consecutive weeks.
