Memoir is the art of telling the story of your life-how you got here from there, how you became who you are, and the lessons you learned along the way. It's an art grounded in what it means to be human, and mastering it means asking and answering life's big questions in an entertaining, engaging, and ultimately enlightening way. This is a tall order for any writer, whether you are writing about your difficult childhood, your summer romance, or your recent trek up Mount Everest.


In this one-of-a-kind Agent One-on-One boot camp, literary agent and author Paula Munier draws upon her extensive background in publishing, her intimate knowledge of the marketplace, and her personal experience writing her own memoir to give you the tools you need to write and sell your life story. You'll learn how to:

  • Find your authentic voice
  • Decide what to put in your memoir-and what to leave out
  • Structure your story in the most compelling way
  • Heighten the drama-from the small moments to the big events
  • Use story questions to keep readers turning the pages
  • Conduct research to fill in the gaps and achieve verisimilitude
  • Adopt fictional techniques to deepen the emotional impact of your story
  • Apply an organizing principle to set your story apart from the competition

With examples from current bestsellers and beloved classics as well as her own work, Paula will help you navigate the pleasures and pitfalls of writing your own life's journey-from the first sentence to your final pre-submission checklist.


As L.P. Hartley most famously said, "The past is a foreign country," but with Paula as your guide, you will explore your past to best advantage, sifting through keepsakes and documents, reminiscences and memories, experiences and emotions to find the best way to tell the story only you can tell.


Here's how it works:

On July 24, 2015, you will gain access to a special 60-minute online tutorial presented by literary agent Paula Munier of Talcott Notch Literary.


After listening to Paula's tutorial, you will submit the first ten pages of your memoir on Saturday, July 25th by 10 am (ET). The agents will provide initial feedback on July 26th. Also on Sunday, July 26th, agents will be available for a live discussion session on the message boards from 1-4 pm (ET). During this time, writers will be able to ask your assigned agent critiquers questions related to revising your materials. No later than 10 pm ET on July 26th, attendees will submit their first 10 pages again to the agent instructors. Submissions will again receive feedback directly from the boot camp literary agents.


The agents will provide a final brief one-or-two sentence critique of your progress. (The agents reserve the right to request more materials if they feel a strong connection to the work and want to read more; note that multiple agents have signed writers before from WD boot camps.) No later than Aug. 8th, attendees will receive their final agent feedback.


Only registered students can access the discussion boards. You'll also be able to ask questions of your fellow students. Feel free to share your work and gain support from your peers.


Please note that any one of the agents may ask for additional pages if the initial submission shows serious promise.


*Please note that all attendees should have the first 10 pages of their memoir finished and ready to submit to the agent prior to the beginning of the event.


In addition to feedback from agents, attendees will also receive a download of "An Agent's Tips on Story Structures that Sell," an on-demand webinar by literary agent Andrea Hurst.
