A memoir can connect you to others in a vibrant and real way—through story.

Writing a memoir helps you find your voice, tell your story, and reach out to others. You start thinking about your memories, moments that make you feel young again, wondering: what is the legacy I’m leaving behind?

Many memoir writers find that writing a memoir is a vehicle for transformation. At NAMW you can find workshops, teleseminars, and interviews with writers and experts in memoir, writing skills, therapeutic writing, spiritual autobiography, and healing.

At The National Association of Memoir Writers, we believe in the power of memoir writing!

Writing a memoir is a powerful way to find your voice, tell your story, and reach out to the larger world with who you are. It’s a process of mining memories and discovering the most meaningful stories. Through the benefits offered at NAMW, we help writers feel empowered with purpose and energy to begin and develop their stories into a publishable memoir, whether in essay form, a book, a family legacy, or a blog.  NAMW founder, Linda Joy Myers, has taught memoir writing for many years, and has written two memoirs and three books on memoir writing.
