Event description
Do you want to write a memoir? Have started a memoir and need help moving forward? Then this workshop is for you.

About this Event

How do you write a successful, complete story arc about a life you're still living?

Award-winning author and writing coach Tammy Letherer will teach you how to build a powerful outline for your memoir using the Hero's Journey, a story form based on Joseph Campbell's monomyth The Hero with a Thousand Faces.

In this workshop:

You’ll see why and how you are the hero of your story (and how to own that on the page!)

You’ll understand each stage of the Hero’s Journey and, through discovery questions, know which life events belong in your memoir.

You’ll learn the most common mistakes memoir writers make and how to avoid them.

This workshop is for anyone who wants to write memoir, whether you are just beginning or have a complete first draft.
