Would you like to share your life experience with the world? Crafting a memoir book or essay can be tough if you never tried it before. This workshop was created to make that process easier and more fulfilling for you.

Let’s start by answering the first and most important question: what is a memoir? To put it in simple words, a memoir is a book or an essay that tells a real-life story in an interesting and compelling way. Its main goal isn’t to share historical information, but rather to put the reader in the author’s shoes and make them feel what the author felt.
