Journey of Memoir —The Three Stages of Memoir Writing is a workshop in a book. You’ll learn how to begin and develop your memoir—from what happened to exploring the deep meaning of your life and the story you have to tell. There are lessons on how to find your structure to how to write a great scene; information on the difference between freewriting and creating a firm plan, and why you need both. Timeline and turning point exercises help you get started and create structure. You’ll learn about your narrative arc and how to create plot in memoir. Writing the dark and the light, writing to heal, all these avenues for exploration are covered in the book.
Read Journey of Memoir to find out about legal issues in memoir writing, and how to find an agent and publisher. This hands-on workbook gives you the tools you need to begin, develop, and complete your memoir.
