Join this group if you aspire to write: - a memoir - a personal essay - an opinion piece Beginner or experienced, join and learn, or teach us, something about the genre! More importantly, let’s get together and write our stories in an inclusive and supportive environment.
Each time we would do a round of introductions, share where we are in our writing process, highlight one aspect of the memoir genre, write for a while, and end the meeting with a short Q&A.
If you’d like feedback on something you are working on, let the organizer know in advance. You would get the chance to read up to 500 words (5 minutes) and get everyone’s feedback. Alternatively, the organizer would read it, and you’d get feedback while staying anonymous.
I learned to teach the memoir genre recently, taking Beth Finke’s Masterclass. Beth is a published author of two memoirs - "Long Time No See", and "Writing Out Loud". I’ve attended a couple of her class series and taught in one of them. I’ve also taken a number of other classes on memoir writing and teaching. I have blogged for a while and now working on a memoir.
