Write Your Memoir: How to Structure, Outline, and Bring Your Story to Life

A Second section of Write Your Memoir will take place on March 28, 2020, and is open for registration now.

Introductory / Intermediate | In this intensive crash-course, memoir author and book coach Ingrid Ricks arms you with the tools you need to effectively dive into your memoir. She’ll teach you the three most common story structure techniques, and walk you through the simple outlining process she employs for every book project she takes on. From there, she’ll delve into the six powerful narrative writing techniques you need to bring your memoir to life. Be prepared to write! This class includes a lunch break.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
