What is a Memoir?
Memoir is a “true” story, as opposed to a fictional one and it is also writing that provides storytelling techniques which have a distinct voice and style. While memoir should be true, it is more important that the writing be emotionally true because the writer needs to recreate experience for the reader. Memoir is also about making yourself the hero in your story and showing the reader how you overcame obstacles and came out stronger on the other side.
I’ve been teaching memoir for 7 years now and it’s one of my favorite genres to teach!
“I attended Alice Osborn’s memoir class. As a novice writer, I was delighted that her lesson plans provided personal writing experiences. This workshop provided opportunities to explore place, story, figurative language and senses. I was able to expose and question my personal motivation and reasons for considering memoir writing. Her critique of each class assignment was very helpful. I highly recommend Alice for educating and editing novice writers, students, bloggers, social media users and book writers.”
