Thursday Master Class: The Story of Your Life: A Memoir Master Class by William Kenower

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 class, you will learn how to turn your life into a story, discovering the power of narrative arcs, contrast, and compelling scenes taught in an encouraging, supportive, and friendly environment.

Master Class

(Thursday) The Story of Your Life: A Memoir Master Class by William Kenower

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 class, you will learn how to turn your life into a story, discovering the power of narrative arcs, contrast, and compelling scenes taught in an encouraging, supportive, and friendly environment. Using William Kenower’s unique inside-out approach to writing, authors will learn how to successfully sustain their work for the months or even years it takes to finish their manuscript.

 

William Kenower is the author of Write Within Yourself: An Author’s Companion, a Featured Blogger for the Huffington Post Books section, and is the Editor-in-Chief of Author magazine, an online magazine for writers and dedicated readers. He writes a popular daily blog for the magazine about the intersection of writing and our daily lives, and has interviewed hundreds of writers of every genre. He also hosts the online radio program Author2Author where every week he and a different guest discuss the books we write and the lives we lead.
