How to…Write a Memoir

Event Closed

More Details

The road to memoir is paved with good intentions. How do you move from situation to story? How much truth do you tell? And what about privacy? What changes have to be made for narrative flow? How do you marry fact and fiction? Leza Lowitz, author of the multicultural best-selling memoir Here Comes the Sun, will discuss her writing process and delve into the joys and pains of the editing, publication, and marketing processes. Participants will be guided through craft techniques and led through writing exercises to help delve into their own material and find the stories within. Lowitz is joined by Erica Lyons Cohen, editor of Asian Jewish Life magazine. Limited Seats.
