This session is for writers who are thinking about (or already in the process of) telling the true stories of their lives. We’ll look at the “why” beyond your memoir (your purpose and ambition), explore different types of memoir forms available, and how/when we need permission when writing about other people who may appear in our work. We’ll discuss four key areas: writing, editing, publishing, and promotion, as well as setting personal expectations. The memoir is a personal journey as much as a writing one, and understanding how the two work together will help you cross the finish line with your book.
