Check Out Some Memoir Writing Classes
Having trouble getting started on your memoir? When you are assigned a memoir-related exercise or a certain number of pages, or if you’re expected to read your aloud to a group, you’re more likely to follow through on your own goals and deadlines. For that reason alone, a memoir class is valuable—and you just might learn how to write a memoir!
