Today's market for memoir is so much more than the old autobiography. Savvy readers want a solid and interesting structure and a narrator with the chops to take them on a journey. What is the best structure for your manuscript? With a grant from RACC, Regional Arts and Culture Council, Jennifer returned from Boston's Muse & Marketplace conference with lots of good information up her sleeve! We'll look at which structure is the best approach for your particular manuscript.
We'll write in workshop and use exercises to get you close to your plot, setting and characters, and then see how you might weave what you have into a solid structure.
Writers should come with the start of their memoir or have an idea of the project they want to explore. A completed body of work is not a requirement.
