In Let's Write a Memoir, we cover the What, Why, When, Who and How of memoir writing. We do a lot of different writing exercises, designed for maximum fun and learning.We'll also read aloud from some published memoirs, for inspiration. Last, I bring a table full of memoirs and reference books for participants to look at during breaks. By the end of the day, you should have a good idea of how you might put your project together, what it might include, and a game plan to start, keep on, and finish. All participants receive a number of hand-outs, and email links, which cover publishing details, a bibliography of memoirs, etc. Thinkers Lodge offers accommodation if you wish to arrive the night before (I always do this; makes it so relaxed and fun). The cost is for a room is $99, tax in. And you will need to bring your own food for the time you are there. We can use the kitchen and can make tea and coffee, etc. The cost is $150, tax in. This includes a free critique of up to 10 pages of a work in progress, or, if you haven't started, a chat/email with me about your motivations to write a memoir.
