 & Selling Your Memoir with Paula Balzer

There's more to memoir writing than just telling your life story. A memoir is a well-crafted narrative about a crucial, often exceptional, time in someone's life. Literary agent and author Paula Balzer (Writing & Selling Your Memoir, Writers Digest Books) will take participants through the process of telling their most personal tales in a compelling, relatable, and readable manner.  She'll also show you how to approach the genre with love, respect, and unsentimental know-how.

Paula will talk about how to find your hook and use it to catch an agent’s or the media’s attention, how to manage your material and self-edit so that your memoir isn’t flooded with details, how to structure your story for content and marketability, and ways to find, hone and perfect your voice.  She will also confront the always anxiety producing issues of finding a market, agent and publisher for your book.  She will leave you with an armload of creative and practical ideas to get your story out of your heart, onto the page, and into the world.
