This manual evolved from my five-week course on writing memoir. It’s packed with writing prompts, exercises, questionnaires, assignments, and resources to help prod your memory and guide you to write a cohesive memoir.

Once the thread is found, you will be able to better decide what is important to include in your memoir and what to leave out.
