Would you like to share your life experience with the world? Crafting a memoir book or essay can be tough if you've never tried it before. Its main goal isn’t to share historical information, but rather to put the reader in the author’s shoes and make them feel what the author felt. This workshop was created to make that process easier and more fulfilling for you by introducing the principles that you should observe while crafting and sharing your story.

Learning outcomes

At the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Apply principles of memoir writing to your own projects
  • Create and revise a short piece of memoir writing (e.g., outline, character)
