Write Your Memoir in Six Months

I teach a six-month intensive course with Linda Joy Myers, President of the National Association of Memoir Writers, aimed toward memoirists who are serious about finishing their book. Please visit our site to learn more! Class size is limited to 14 writers per session. Our spring 2017 class has a few spots left, and our orientation is on January 4, 2017.


Mastering Memoir

Mastering Memoir is a ten-week intensive that focuses exclusively on craft. I co-teach this course on a semi-regular basis with Linda Joy Myers through Write Your Memoir in Six Months. Check out our course syllabus. If you’re interested in joining this course, please contact me. Our 2017 course is full.


Best-Selling Memoir Series

Each spring and fall I co-teach with Linda Joy Myers a best-selling memoir class, focusing on a New York Times best-selling memoir and using those books to highlight what those authors did well to teach memoirists how to deepen their craft. To date we have taught Wild, Eat, Pray, Love, The Glass Castle, Angela’s Ashes, The Liars’ Club, H Is for Hawk, and most recently our addiction course that highlighted two books, Drinking, by Caroline Knapp and Smashed, by Koren Zailckas. Many of these courses are available to purchase.
