Memoir Structure and Development

with Jennifer Springsteen

Dates: Five Twice-Monthly Tuesdays
March 15 & 29, April 12 & 26, May 10
Time: 6pm - 8pm
Location: Online Studion via Zoom
Cost: $295 (monthly payment plans available at registration page)

This workshop expands over three months: we'll meet on Zoom twice a month and writers will have the opportunity to post their writing in an online forum and respond to the work of others. Also on the site there will be mini-lessons and readings.

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? 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.
