Memoir 101: Writing the Stories of your Life 

If you’ve ever been to a party with an open bar, you understand that everyone has a story to tell. Sometimes they’re funny, sometimes they’re sad, and sometimes they take your breath away. But taking personal stories, putting them on paper, and making them your own can be a challenge, one that some aspiring writers never overcome. That’s where Memoir 101 comes in.

The three-part class in partnership with Parnassus Books and Cheekwood will provide students with a solid background in narrative structure, the elements of memoir, and answering the question, “How the heck do I decide what to write about?” We’ll also take a look at some of today’s leading memoirists and what they’re doing right.
 

Memoir 101 meets at Cheekwood Art & Gardens, a beautiful and inspirational place to write the story of your life. A Novel Idea's expert instructors will help you imagine, create, and curate the tales that have made you who you are.
