Whether you long to be the next Cheryl Strayed or just write your memories for your children in a way that’s readable and entertaining, Rebecca will address memoir’s common challenges:
How to structure your memoir
How to create a story arc
How to develop and write about the people in your story
How to incorporate dialogue
She’ll discuss the issue of recreating material, i.e., where do you draw the line between fact and fiction? When is it okay to fill in the blanks and when is it not?
This workshop will get you started on the right foot or help you self-correct midway. A perfect follow-up to our popular Online Memoir Success Summit.
Join live on January 26 at 9 a.m. Central Time. Recording also available.
