Instructor: Nina Munteanu
Have you been writing your memoir for years, waiting to finish it and hoping to publish? You may be looking for direction on how and where to start and proceed and where to finish. Memoirs, like all good creative non-fiction, tell a story.

The 2-day online Lecture & Workshop covers the following:
- Writing for your intended audience
- Formulating the core idea into theme
- Why and how to outline
- Why, how, where and when to do research
- Courage and privacy issues: what and how to reveal
- General discussion of how to incorporate plot with theme in storytelling.
- How to create a good story from truth
- Mechanics of good storytelling (show don’t tell, language, POV, setting, etc.)
This is an interactive workshop and includes exercises for participants to learn directly by doing.
