What you'll learn in this memoir writing class:

In memoir writing, writers have the chance to unleash memories in hopes of discovering a meaningful story that is part of life. The process of conveying that narrative on paper, however, can prove to be difficult. Explore the variety of memoir structures--including the use of voice, narrative arc, setting, and details--and find out how to identify the most compelling way to tell your story.

Reviewed by Gabby V. on 5/22/2019
Anita is amazing!! She's incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about memoir and I left the course feeling so much more confident about continuing with my own writing. Also, she did a beautiful job at making us a very cohesive group where feedback was shared in a genuine and protected space. It was a wonderful and unforgettable experience. I look forward to taking a course with her again.

This class was a fantastic way to learn how to write in memoir style or improve upon your technique. It’s great for beginners and experts alike and Anita is a really constructive and helpful teacher. I wish it was longer or there was a part two to this course!
