“Making Your Memoir Memorable” Workshop

NOVEMBER 1-30, 2018

Do you have a memoir underway or have you even finished one? Did you take “Finding Your Memoir” back in August or have you taken memoir workshops elsewhere? Then this advanced, intensive workshop is for you.

Over the course of the month I’ll work with you on your first chapters or first pages to make sure that your work is focused, vivid, and compelling. If you’re not grabbing your readers in the opening pages and sustaining that interest, then you’re likely to lose readers since there’s just so much competition for their attention. I’ll do it all with you, from analyzing content, structure, and style to proofing and copyediting, so that you’re well on your way to writing something unforgettable.

I’ll work with each workshop participant individually via email. You’ll send me your writing as a Microsoft Word file attached to your email; I’ll comment using Track Changes on what you send, as well as do close editing and return it to you. Before the workshop begins, we’ll speak on the phone about your goals for the workshop.

I’ve published three books of memoirs. The best known is My Germany, which explores what Germany, real and imagined, has meant to me as a writer as the son of Holocaust survivors. I toured with the book twice all across Germany as well as in the U.S. and Canada, doing over fifty talks and readings, some of them in German.

“Making Your Memoir Memorable” runs from November 1-November 30, 2018 and enrollment is limited to ten participants. To enroll you need to register and pay the workshop fee of $250. Fees are not refundable, but you can apply them to a future workshop if you’re unable to participate after registering.

Please note: You must be 18 or over to register for this workshop.
