Everyone has a story.
In Memoir 101, two-time published author Gillian Marchenko teaches the basics of writing memoir to help you work towards seeing your book in print. With over eight years of professional experience, Gillian provides eight lessons to:
- Understand the genre of memoir.
- Key in on your theme.
- Find your structure.
- Become the narrator.
- Get your rough draft down.
- Develop craft.
- Write strong.
*Plus, Gillian offer's a sneak peek video into the future (finishing your book, agents, publishing).
- An introductory video.
- PowerPoint presentations (to download) with videos from Gillian embedded in the slides (the teaching part of each lesson).
- Downloadable notes in PDF form.
- A comment section for questions and interaction with Gillian and other students.
- Occasional live chats and videos (you will be invited through email).
Memoir 101 is designed for your convenience. It is about your speed and timeline. Once you have purchased the course, you can go through it in eight weeks or take your time, and you always, always have the option to review any lesson.
Some online writing courses cost over $1000. Gillian's eight-week introductory course is $167.00. That's a smidgen over $20 a lesson. People spend that much at Starbucks each week!
*PLEASE NOTE: Students download lessons and work through them individually. Teaching does not include live videos and chats with Gillian (although you may receive an invitation for a special event).
