Here’s what we’ll be covering in the free webinar on March 5:
  • How to tightly weave your themes into every scene of your memoir, and how to use theme as a North Star to guide your story and plot and provide deeper satisfaction for readers.
  • How to think about narration—one of the most powerful tools memoirists have that gives readers context and interprets events to give them deeper meaning.
  • How to deepen your characters, giving yourself permission to delve into observation and characterization to allow for greater nuance and understanding.
  • How to pay attention to and learn to better integrate sensory details and vivid language to elevate your memoir.
We always record, so as long as you’re signed up, you’ll get the recording the next day to your inbox.
Thank you again!
