Want to know what goes into making a memoir? We’re talking all about it with Lisa Anselmo, Laura Bradbury, and Samantha Vérant—authors whose memoirs have inspired readers around the world—and left a lasting impact.

We’ll take you behind the scenes to discover the process and pitfalls:

Getting it right: going from “Dear Diary” to an unputdownable story

  • The personal process—getting started, sorting the emotions, finding your inner voice
  • Creating a compelling story arc readers can relate to
  • What to avoid, what to exploit
  • Writing about the people in your life—the risks and rewards

Getting it published: indie vs. traditional

  • The 101
  • Pros and cons of each
  • What’s different?; what’s the same?

Getting it out there: connecting with your audience

  • Finding passionate readers
  • Marketing tactics that sell
  • Drawing a crowd at your appearances
  • Beyond the book—selling the experience

If you want to write a memoir—or just love reading them—you won’t want to miss this!
