What’s Your Memoir REALLY About?

Perhaps the trickiest part of structuring a memoir is figuring out the container for your story. What's the driving question? What are the main events and, just as important, what doesn't belong in your book? Answer these questions and more during this generative class that includes workshopping the first ten pages of your memoir. You'll leave with a better understanding of where your story begins and a clear path to the finish line!
