Memoir 101: join an online writing course

Memoir 101, Write a memoir worthy of publishing.


Memoir 101, Write a memoir worthy of publishing

…is a great new opportunity for you! My new online writing course will help you write a memoir worthy of publishing. I am excited!

First of all, here are the details:

Everyone has a story. In Memoir 101, I teach the basics of writing memoir with the goal of seeing your book in print. I have over eight years of professional experience. As a result, I can help you:

– Understand the genre of memoir.

– Start.

– Key in on your theme.

– Find your structure.

– Become the narrator.

– Get your rough draft down.

– Develop craft.

– Write strong.

Each lesson includes:

– An introductory video on the topic.

– PowerPoint presentations (to download) that include videos from me embedded in the slides (the teaching part of each lesson).

– Downloadable notes from the lesson in PDF form.

– Assignments.

– A comment section in each lesson to ask questions and interact with me and other students.

– Occasional live interaction via chats and videos (you will be invited through email).

Finally, this course is designed for your convenience and it is about your speed and timeline.

After you purchase Memoir 101, go through it in eight weeks or take your time and you always, always have the option to review any lesson. Some online writing courses cost as much as $1000. My eight-week introductory course is $167.00. That’s a smidgen over $20 a lesson. People spend that much at Starbucks each week!


MEMOIR 101 is designed for students to download the lessons and work through them individually. Live videos and chats are not included (although you may receive an invitation for a special event sometimes). A comment section provides interaction for each lesson.
