Life Writing
Have you ever wanted to write memoir?

You might want to tell the story of your life, or recount a family history. Perhaps you want to write about a community and how it's grown over the years. Life Writing can apply to so many different projects. But where do you start? How do you structure your story? What should you include and what should you exclude? And how do you transcend those emotional and intellectual barriers to access those details that can make your story so compelling?

Life Writing is the perfect introduction for anybody who's ever wanted to write any sort of biography.
