Writing Your Memoirs

This workshop will guide participants through the process of planning the narrative arc of their memoir, deciding what parts of their story are important and what are not, dealing with the truth and how it can affect the other people in your story, and tips on staying motivated to write.  

Participants will leave with a clear plan of how to start/finish their memoir and knowledge of how to deal with the elements listed above. 

And ultimately how to get published!
