We are excited to launch a new Memoir Writing Certificate in 2024!Through a series of six courses, the Memoir Writing Certificate will help you turn your personal story into a book-length memoir. In the first course, you’ll learn the fundamentals of memoir, explore the differences between journalistic nonfiction and personal narrative, and develop your ability to write fearlessly and establish a consistent habit. You will go on to take a sequence of four courses designed to help you excavate your material, discover your memoir's theme, and structure and complete your manuscript, as well as an elective to broaden your craft. Once you complete the series, you will have the opportunity to sign up for an optional one-on-one tutorial in which you’ll launch your revision process guided by an experienced memoirist.
