Across the United States and probably the world, courses are offered regularly to help people write memoirs. High school and college English classes also sometimes assign a project that involves autobiography writing. Less formally, groups get together to encourage each other in this endeavor and read the work aloud for a critique from group members.
To get students/participants started, some of these classes and groups use WriteMyMemoirs for online assistance. It helps to keep everyone focused and, of course, the work never gets lost and everyone can access it from any Internet-connected computer. There are no excuses like, “My dog ate my homework???! With so many ideas on the site, the writers stay motivated and easily come up with topics for their chapters.
If you’re participating in a group of this type or taking a writing class, we’d love for you to suggest WriteMyMemoirs as a group sign-up activity. The assignment doesn’t even have to be memoirs, really, since our site is just as handy for writing novels, short stories, essays and journalistic pieces. If your class or group does sign up with us, please drop us a line! We’d enjoy knowing how you’re progressing and perhaps here on the blog we could share your thoughts on the process.
