Writing the Memoir 101

Learn how to start and finish a memoir in an engaging way. During the Memoir 101 workshop, the class will review different types of memoirs. You'll learn how to create the cast of characters and an outline to form your story. Then, you'll find pivotal moments to put on the page. Discover how to add suspense to sustain the reader's interest. Find out how slowing down and reflecting on a dramatic moment provides meaning to the work.

In the Writing the Memoir 101 online class, you will be given the opportunity to write a summary of the memoir, the cast of characters, a working outline, the opening pages, a dramatic scene, a reflective sequel, and additional scenes. You will also be able to review your overall intentions for the memoir.

"What I enjoy most about teaching memoir writing is helping writers use specific tools of craft to recreate the world of their lives on the page. In the process, I see writers create art out of their life events in a way that allows them to master their stories, a process that is not only healing to the writer but helpful and inspiring to the reader."

  ~ Tracy Strauss

The goal of this course is to teach you how to structure your memoir, develop your storytelling skills, and give you tips to adapt your own life stories into a memoir. A former student said, "I got a lot out of this course. Tracy Strauss gave very constructive feedback that I was able to use. Learning that I need to write more scenes, and not rely so much upon stream of consciousness writing was tough to accept, but also necessary." Another student said, "Wonderful class. Learned a lot from Tracy and would absolutely take another class from her." Tracy is only available to teach for WDU a few times a year so take advantage of this opportunity now. This workshop consists of six two-week sessions.
Join Writing the Memoir 101. Class begins this Thursday, June 25th. You can log in to class anytime day or night since there is not a scheduled time to meet. Writers from all over the world are welcome. The registration fee is $379.99.
