Writing a memoir is a powerful act of faith, courage, and skill. What is the theme of your memoir? How do you feel about writing your truth? Is your goal to get even or get healed? We will talk about all these issues, and use the turning point, timeline, and arc of narrative tools to find the right stories for your theme and intent.
