The Art of Writing Memoir: Finding the Past in the Present
Publisher: Writers Audio Shop
Date: October 2010
Duration: 3 hours 47 minutes
This weekend workshop is a primer on writing the modern memoir, which, unlike your grandmother's memoir, can be written at any age. Also, a memoir can be about just part of your life. "The more you are present, the more the past will come up and be alive," says Natalie. "Only right now can give you your past." Topics include how to crack open structure, listen effectively, use specific detail, find a new angle, fail successfully and make connections with your mind.
