From Brevity editor and author Allison K Williams, and Lisa Romeo, author of Starting with Goodbye: A Daughter’s Memoir of Love After Loss, a day of writing, learning and creating your memoir.

We’ll talk dramatic structure, truth-telling without hurting loved ones, narrative power, and choosing material. Learn how writing a memoir proposal can help focus the book you’ve written, or sell the book you want to write. Discover how placing a “hot essay” can jumpstart your publication process.

Suitable for those with an idea, a draft, or a terrifying pile of material.

Cost: $150
