3. Live Writing Workshops
We love doing live programs, often speaking to groups at libraries, historical societies, and writing clubs. We also present at conferences, being guest speakers for any type of business, education, or association gathering. We’ve done fundraisers, too. Check out our Events page to schedule an event or for more information about attending an event.
4. Critiques & Editing
Do you have a manuscript for your memoir but need someone to help you polish it before you let anyone else see it? Sometimes small changes, such as the order of chapters or transitions between one part of your story to the next, can transform a manuscript from a mediocre read to a memorable page-turner. We’ll make sure you memoir still sounds like you – the best of you.
5. Publishing Consultations
Whether you’re considering self-publishing your memoir as an e-book, want to find a literary agent to pitch your book to specific publishing houses, or would like to submit your book to our enchanting partners at Deeds Publishing, our resources help you identify the best method for getting your story published. Publishing options are covered in our book.
6. Yeah, we have a lot of fun doing this! We think that you, too, will find that writing your memoir is a freeing experience. We hope you’ll let us guide you as you embark on this adventure of a lifetime: writing your life story.
