Description from the site:
From literary to commercial; from personal to political to historical to celebrity; from journalistic to fictionalized; from essays to articles to poetry to books—your memoir can take many shapes.
Finding the form most suitable to your particular story, style, and voice is essential in assuring that you and your readers will be happy with the results. Clarifying why you are writing, how to keep writing and what final form(s) you’d find satisfying are key to your success in completing and sharing your memoir.
In reviewing your many options, you’ll discover some of the questions you need to be asking yourself about your memoir project—questions that will help you solve for the answers you need to abolish obstacles and take yourself—and your readers—on a unique and exciting journey.
In the session we’ll talk about:
- Determining the shape of your memoir
- Advantages and disadvantages of various forms
- Abolishing obstacles
- Finding the joy in your project
- Knowing when and how to let go
