Writing your life story with the audience in mind
How to Structure Your Memoir
Writing a memoir can seem overwhelming. The key is knowing how to outline your memoir to give it the structure of a best-selling novel and the heart only you can provide.
About This Episode
Many bestselling memoirs are written by the already-famous: Actors, business titans, government officials. However, the majority of the memoirs published every year are written by people who are not famous, perhaps not even well-known in their community. So why do these memoirs sell? In a word… structure.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
- What elements to include in your memoir and what to exclude.
- How to order your chapters and sections for maximum reader immersion
- How to attract the right readers to your book, guaranteeing positive reviews
