Roadmapping Your Memoir

Introductory | Develop a clear roadmap for your memoir in this generative workshop. Memoir author and writing coach Ingrid Ricks will help you hone in on your story theme and message, and teach you four compelling ways to structure your book. Then she’ll walk you through the simple outlining process she employs for every book project she takes on. This class includes a 30-minute individual coaching session between the two classes to drill down on your story structure and message.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
