Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend

Your life is a story, and if told correctly, a very interesting one. There is an art to taking the sprawling events of your life and reducing them down to a compelling memoir. In this 5-week class, we will look at how to find, structure, and sell your memoir. Using Bill Kenower’s unique inside-out approach to writing, you will learn how to successfully sustain your work for the months or even years it takes to finish a manuscript.

Class Focus

Our best stories are often those we are most reluctant to tell. Writing a memoir requires all the discipline of crafting a work of fiction, with the added complication that authors are often sharing intimate and difficult details from their lives. In this 5-week class we will learn how to turn our life into a story, discovering the power of narrative arcs, contrast, and compelling scenes, in an environment that is encouraging, supportive, and friendly. Using Bill Kenower’s unique inside-out approach to writing, writers will learn how to successfully sustain their work for the months or even years it takes to finish their manuscript.
