  • Sell Your Stuff: How to Get Your Novel or Memoir Published (OnDemand Webinar): If you're writing a novel or life story, it takes a stunning package to see a book all the way to publication. You have to become more than just a writer—you have to sell your stuff to agents and editors. Uncover tools that a writer uses to sell a novel or memoir—such as voice, a good first page, the query, the elevator pitch, the tagline and more. You will also learn how to approach agents and editors at writing events. ($79.00 value)
  • How to Write Your Life Story or Memoir (OnDemand Webinar): Writing a memoir or a life story can be an overwhelming task. You wonder where to begin, how to structure it, how much truth to tell, and how to manage conflicting family opinions. Not only do writers need to sort through the emotional aspects of writing a memoir based on their own experiences, but it's important to write a story with dramatic interest. Even if you simply want to share your story with family, the reader needs to be drawn into your story. You create the world of your past through using fictional tools such as the correct point of view, scenes, vivid descriptions, and by creating a narrative arc. Create a publishable and well-written work that you can be proud of. ($89.00 value)

This is your time to turn untold life stories into personal essays or even a published book. ($16.99 value)
  • Writing & Selling Your Memoir (PDF): A memoir isn't one long diary entry. Rather, it's a well-crafted story about a crucial, often exceptionally difficult time, in someone's life. Get the knowledge and skills you need to turn your most important personal stories into compelling and meaningful reading experiences for others. ($17.99 value)

Perfect for a beginner like me Review by Debbie

I really want to write a memoir, because I have a lot of good stories to share. But I wasn't sure how to begin writing a memoir. I bought this kit and it really gives you the basics and beyond. I have already learned so much.
