Ten Tips: An Intensive Workshop on Writing the Memorable Memoir with Judy Huge
This is your opportunity to examine your own writing through the lens of ten experienced readers and ten proven bits of advice. The workshop defines “memoir” as first-person writing regardless of length, from the personal essay and autobiographical short story to a book-length, nonfiction narrative. For a memoir to matter, stay with the reader beyond the final word or last page, it must be read, remembered, and emotionally experienced as true. None of these are “givens.” It’s your job to make this happen and this workshop’s job to help you do it.
