How can you write the best story of your life? Maybe you’ve started writing but now you are stuck, wondering what to include, what to leave out, and how to put it all together. This class provides real world solutions to challenges memoir writers face. Discover tips on how to grab your readers’ attention from the start, how to write effective dialogue, and how to provide the most powerful ending to your story, all without making anything up.
