Memoir Writing Coach

Writers often discover that writing a memoir is not as easy as they anticipated.

People often discover that writing a memoir:


  • Takes longer than they thought it would
  • Takes considerable skill (which can be taught and learned)
  • Can bring back painful memories, which can be difficult to write about and cause considerable delays.

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.
